Oral sex (mouth-penis, mouth-vagina): The risk from oral sex is very minimal as the mouth is an inhospitable environment for HIV, for several reasons. Saliva contains enzymes that break down the virus; also, the skin of the mouth is sturdier than in the anus or vagina. There are, however, a few documented cases where it appears that HIV was transmitted orally. These cases are all attributed to ejaculation in the mouth (i.e., exposure to semen, not exposure to vaginal fluid or pre-seminal fluid).

this comes from San Francisco Aids Foundation

there has NEVER been a documented and verified case of someone contracting hiv from oral sex only.  the doctors on this site also have stated the same.

"a few documented cases where it appears"

The above information comes from self-report surveys. The "documented cases" involved persons who basically claimed to have contracted HIV via oral sex. There is no scientific data to prove these claims. But there is an ABUNDANCE of actual clinical data to disprove them.

As you have been told, repeatedly, oral sex is NOT A RISK for contracting HIV. Period. Be well.
