Hi Anon,


Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Below is what AIDS.gov reports on kissing and HIV:

  • Contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and HIV-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids. Deep, open-mouth kissing if the person with HIV has sores or bleeding gums and blood from the HIV-positive partner gets into the bloodstream of the HIV-negative partner. HIV is not spread through saliva

A dental dam are used for (vaginal or anal) oral sex to prevent STD transmittal and keep bacteria and viruses away from the mouth.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
