What are the chances of a male getting an STD by receiving unprotected oral sex?

Asked by on January 3, 2014

What are the chances of a male getting an STD by receiving unprotected oral sex? Assuming he is healthy, no other infections or diseases, no cuts or sores etc. Many sources simply say it is possible to transmit STDs via oral sex so you must use a condom. I am interested in a more detailed profile of the risk involved for a male receiving from a female. Which diseases could be transmitted and what kind of infection rates are shown for them?

Sorry about the repeated details!

I guess I should clarify my question. I have already read the advice “always use protection.. STD transmission is still possible” and I am not asking for that. When I said what are the rates of infection I actually meant:

What is the probability specifically for an individual male that he will become infected by an STD from receiving unprotected oral sex from a female. What the infection transmission chances for any relevant STDs in this specific situation?

Herpes and HPV can both be trasmitted via saliva. HIV is also secreted in saliva, but the risks are small if your skin is otherwise intact and the woman has no open sores in your mouth.
For infection rates, try wikipedia under STD, but the actual rate of infection would vary from region to region depending on the numbers of carriers.
Moral of the story is….use a condom everytime, for any sexual contact, period.

Any transfer of body fluids carries a risk of transferring STD’s, although it doesn’t look like vaginal oral sex is that risky according to the table below. A dental dam can be used (think of a condom cut in half length-wise) to prevent transfer of STDs for vaginal oral sex.

unless the other partner is a habitual”oral sex” giver…then i wouldn’t really worry too much….now,if it was a dude doin the same for a chick,that could be a little riske~ because of the way of the sexual parts are formed…womens are dark and moist areas…where bacteria loves to hide and develope.other wise check with our former pres., Mr. clinton about this issue…sorry..couldn’t resist……. 🙂

Worst case scenario:

A young college coed died in 2003 from meningitis. The causative organism was Gonorrhea.

He gave oral sex to a female that was infected. Does this answer your question?

Receiving would be more dangerous if you had lesions on your nether regions or she had sores in her mouth. HIV would have a very low risk in this incident as I am assuming most viruses would as the saliva contains low amounts of viruses and there probably isn’t an entry way on your body. I wouldn’t stress but maybe get it checked out, as any sexually active person should have regular STI checkups. Remember the worry you feel now and use better precaution in the future. Hope this helps!

what ever the chances are, it is not worth it. I don’t mind giving a few tips. If she is going to give YOU head, use a condom, preferably flavored. Ask her what she likes, i personally prefere kiss of mint from lifestyle. Also if YOU’re giving HER head, then use a dental dam. It’s a latex sheet. I haven’t heard if they come flavored, but there are jellies and lubricants that are safe for that.

there is no exact percentage since there is the difference on each person condition. However, the risk of getting chlamydia and gonorrhea still high especially if you do not wear condom. STD can infect you through not only vaginal but also oral and anal sex. Genital herpes also possible to infect you when even when you are kissing infected mouth and throat. However, wearing the condom does not mean you are completely safe since condom may leak or wrongly used.
