Syphilis Transmission

To transmit syphilis, does there always have to be direct contact with a lesion? Can a person not showing symptoms of syphilis still transmit it?

In the case of oral sex, it is a rare form of transmission right? Though higher rates in gay men, still low overall?

Direct contact only. Yes rare no matter who it is with.
