Just a pretty basic question, is it good to use saliva as a lubricant or can too much be a bad thing? I know that obviously there is saliva involved in oral sex so it can't be terrible but I just thought I'd ask.
You`re pretty much right, Buttercuppy. It is mainly genital to genital for STDs and can also be genital to oral infection, for example gonorrhea in some cases, but oral to genital transmission via saliva only is nothing I have heard of so far.
My understanding is that you would have to come in direct contact with lesions of an infected partner`s mouth to be even faintly at risk. There are only very few STDs with lesions in the mouth, I believe a stage of syphilis has it. Also, there seem to have been cases when lip herpes was transmitted to the genital area via oral sex, but any if that with saliva only is new to me.
Just go with condoms and lubricants if in doubt and have fun.
Here is my story and I almost lost my peace of mind as your saying. Wonder how much test I am going to take unnecessarily.Pls help
First I apoligise for my writings since english is not my native language.I am an old male and enjoy having sensual massage time to time in a place I know from a girl who get testing regularly. On September 12 , while doing some hand job all of a sudden she spit on the shaft of my penis to lubricate her hand even though there was enough body cream applied before.
Later I asked the owner of the place and learned that her last test was on 22 August, 20 days before that stupid action.
I had no any symptoms described as acute Hiv infection listed here since than but being very anxiousI got a combo 4.gen (Ab/Ag) on 18 dys after which was negative than four more test as at 25,31,37 and 45 days all resulted negative in a lab uses Siemens ehiv assay in their Centaur XP
