Deep Kissing - STD risks

Hi,

I can't find a definite answer on the forum regarding the risks of STD involved in deep kissing (without seeing any sore but possible bleeding gums or micro-cut).
Some sites mention that it is not a behavior that put at risks and some mention that it is risky...
Can you tell me what are the major risks?
I think Hep B, HSV1 are definitely a risk but what about HSV 2?, and the other STD (Chlam, Gonno,...,)...i read that HIV was not a risk for deep kissing.

Thank you for your response and your help!

The main concern with deep kissing is Herpes. HIV is not transferred via kissing.

Thanks for your response!

When you mean herpes do you mean Type II also?
No other STD risks?

deep kissing is not a std risk.

we don't consider oral herpes a std. oral herpes is transmitted through romantic type kisses though.

we don't recommend any testing from kissing someone.
