    I had been doing bare blow jobs for the last 10 years For some 200+ casual sex workers , all females and all with capped vaginal...and someone told me that MANY people are getting HIV thru oral sex....

    I know it's extremely low risk... And haven't seen anyone in the web that contracted it thru oral sex...

    Should I refrain in doing this? What's the most update study on this?

    Thanks

    Your post is a bit confusing. Are you receiving the blow jobs or giving them? And what is a capped vaginal?

    There is no risk in receiving a BJ, it's the person giving the BJ who has a very small risk of HIV, if the person they are servicing has HIV.

    MANY people are not getting HIV through oral sex...which appears to be quite a popular exercise and if true, a whole heck of a lot more folks would be HIV positive then actually are.

    We still stick with our statistical risk that unprotected oral sex provides an estimated risk of .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source KNOWN to carry the virus.

    A condom (which your initial posting indicates you are already using). The virus cannot cross an intact latex condom.
