Question Question!!!

Ok, I really want to start a new relationship with a guy.. I told him about the HPV situation I have. He is totally supportive and understanding.
I know HPV can be trasmitted through sex, oral and anal sex.

My question is, can it be transmitted through kissing? I already don't want to have sex with this guy for a long time.. I at least want to kiss him without having to transmit it...
So please..adivce would be nice.

Re: Question!!!

No, you cannot transmit HPV by kissing. You need to actual have contact with someone's genital or anal region to spread HPV.

Re: Question!!!

if you cannot spread it by kissing.. then what about giving oral sex to the person who does not have HPV? i understnad if someone who didnt have HPV performed oral sex on someone and they got it.. but what about the opposite?

Re: Question!!!

A person who has HPV giving oral sex to a person without HPV is a pretty safe activity. You can't ever say something is 100% safe, of course, but HPV doesn't take to the mouth nearly as easily as it takes to the genitals. Even giving oral sex to a person who has HPV is considered significantly lower risk than having genital-to-genital contact with them.
