I heard the chances are slim, if a girl gives you oral sex and you do nothing in return, what are the chances of getting HIV or other diseases? A lot of people tell me it's next to none but i need a professional to give me a better Idea.

 

Thanks,

Just wondering.

From CDC:

The risk of HIV transmission through oral sex is much less than that from anal or vaginal sex—but it is not zero.
 
Performing oral sex on an HIV-infected man, with ejaculation in the mouth, is the riskiest oral sex activity.
 
Factors that may increase the risk of HIV transmission through oral sex are oral ulcers, bleeding gums, genital sores, and the presence of other sexually transmitted diseases.
 

To reduce your risk even more, make sure you keep the mucous membranes in your mouth healthy – don’t perform oral for about 45 minutes after you brush your teeth, floss, or engage in any other aggravating oral behavior, and not at all when you have open sores.

Remember, while the chance of catching HIV from oral sex is very low, you can easily catch other STDs, in particular gonorrhea and chlamydia.
