    This must have been discussed before, but I'm still unsure.
    I am fro Africa where HIV is a major dister, as everyone knows. What are the chances of getting HIV by means of a BJ??

    HIV enters the body through cuts in the skin, open sores, tiny tears in the mucous membranes of the mouth, rectum, or vagina, and directly into the blood by a needle. It is generally accepted that the virus is transmitted through direct exposure to contaminated bodily fluids that have not been exposed to the air.

    In order to assess your risk in intimate activities, consider the continuum of risk below:

    Very low risk -- no reported cases due to these behaviors

    Masturbation or mutual masturbation
    Touching or massage
    Erotic massage or body rubbing
    Casual kissing
    Oral sex on a man with a condom
    Oral sex on a woman with a dental dam

    Low risk - rare reported cases due to these behaviors

    Deep kissing
    Unprotected oral sex
    Vaginal sex with a condom or female condom
    Anal sex with a condom

    High risk -- millions of reported cases

    Vaginal sex without a condom
    Anal sex without a condom

    Oh... source: Brown University

    Thus, the risk is low, but not altogether impossible.

    It is much easier to get other STDs from oral sex though, like chlamydia and herpes. Having other STDs also makes you more susceptible to contracting HIV.

    Shit. I thought it was virtually impossible to get HIV from a blow job. I'm worried now, because I haven't been that careful. Had a few unprotected blow jobs. :frown1:

    I think that it is highly possible. But it also depends on if the person is HIV positive as well. I say that because both women and men suck cock. I think that the infection rate would probably be much higher. Like I said that it is possible. Like any kind of sex without knowing someone's history or status, it's a risk.
