Oral sex...is it safe?

Can anyone give me details about how safe oral sex on a woman is or isn't? Is there less of a chance to become HIV-positive than other ways? I heard that using cellophane on a woman's vagina is a safe and effective option. Would this method satisfactory for the woman?

Thanks
Mike

Re: Oral sex...is it safe?

Well, oral is safter than unprotected intercourse, but you are still at risk. I don't know the odds. Lots of people get away with unprotected oral, but plenty get diseased, too. A lot of men who have unprotected oral come down with stange symptoms that defy diagnosis, too, so there may be things going on we don't yet know about. Why play the odds game? Always be as safe as you can.

I think a dental dam or piece of Saran wrap would work better than cellophane.

Re: Oral sex...is it safe?

If the woman has an STD and you perform oral sex on her you can contract the STD.

The STD can come from a sore on her genitals or through her vaginal fluids. To be safer use a dental dam or saran wrap type plastic placed over her vagina. If you dont have access to dental dams you can cut a condom lengthwise and open it up and place it over her vagina too.

Will it be as pleasurable for the woman as performing oral without any protection...probably not...but, better safe than sorry.
