Joey’s (24) Question: Halo Dr Dick. I don’t always use protection when I give my partners a blow job. What is my risk?

Dr Dick’s response: HIV is spread through body fluids, mainly semen, vaginal secretions and blood. Your risk of contracting HIV from any of those fluids is a possibility if they are present during oral sex. Note that even though oral sex is low risk for HIV transmission (in the absence of semen, vaginal secretions and blood), other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) could be transmitted. Condoms remain a method of prevention.
