“A lot of kids are into oral sex. Is it true that you can get an STI in your mouth also if a person is infected?”
Yes, it is true that you can get a sexually transmitted infection of the mouth or throat from oral sex. The best advice is that for anyone having oral sex needs to talk with their care provider about protection. Using latex condoms or a latex dental dam will reduce the risk of infection.
“If you have an STD and someone wants to go down on you, will they get it?”
Although unprotected oral sex is less risky than vaginal or anal sex when it comes to spreading STDs, it can still put both partners at risk for certain infections. STDs that can be spread during oral sex include gonorrhea, hepatitis A & B, herpes, human papilloma virus (HPV), and syphilis.
If you or your partner might have an STD, it’s a good idea to use protection for oral sex, whether you’re giving or receiving. For safer oral sex, you can use a condom to cover the penis, or a dental dam or plastic wrap to cover the vulva or anus.
“What STDs can a man get from receiving oral sex?”
The most likely would be Herpes Simplex 1 or 2. If your partner has herpes, this can be transmitted to you rather easily. Not quite as common for female to male transmission would by HPV. If your partner had the virus in their mouth or throat, then this could be transmitted to you. Might I suggest using a barrier method when giving and receiving oral sex? You can use a latex condom for protection and there are dental dams available for purchase too.
