 HIV and Oral sex
Although there are only limited USA data about how often adolescents engage in oral sex, some data suggest that many adolescents who engage in oral sex do not consider it to be sex; therefore they may use oral sex as an option to experience sex while still, in their minds, remaining abstinent.

Oral sex is still regarded as a low-risk sexual activity in terms of HIV transmission, but only when more work is done will we be clearer as to the risks of oral sex.

 American Social Health Association - Herpes Resource Center
Oral herpes is transmitted through direct contact between the contagious area and broken skin (a cut or break) and mucous membrane tissue (such as the mouth or genitals).

Oral herpes is commonly referred to as “cold sores” and “fever blisters.” While symptoms of oral herpes most commonly appear on or around the lips, oral herpes is not always limited to this area.

 Transmission of Primary and Secondary Syphilis by Oral Sex --- Chicago, Illinois, 1998--2002
Overall, 86 (13.7%) persons indicated that oral sex was their only sexual exposure during the period they likely acquired syphilis: 66 (20.3%) of 325 MSM, 10 (6.4%) of 157 heterosexual men, and 10 (6.9%) of 145 heterosexual women (p<0.0001) (Table).
Because the risk for HIV transmission through oral sex is much lower than the risk through anal or vaginal sex (4), persons might mistakenly consider unprotected oral sex (i.e., without a condom) to be a safe or no-risk sexual practice and adopt oral sex as a replacement for higher-risk behaviors.
Transmission was attributed to oral sex in only the 14% of cases in which oral sex was the only sexual exposure reported during the interval when syphilis likely was acquired.
