    HIV prevention guides always say not to floss before oral, but they never (at least the ones I have read) say what that means specifically. Do they mean immediately before, a few hours before, or are you not supposed to floss in at all on a day where you might engage in oral?

    I'd say several hours. Your platelets will cover up the wounds within that time. Floss in the morning. Hook up at night. lol.

    Yup, I als avoid brushing and flossing 2-3 hours before sex. I make sure to rinse with a chlorhexidine based mouthwash after swapping fluids with anyone, to kill any residual baddies

    Just use condoms when giving a blow job. It's only the safest way to do it.

    I wouldn't floss or bush my teeth immediately before of after oral.

    I think ZbmwM5 has given the best advice. If anything use a good mouth wash before and after and have fun.

    I have my stash! Sorry HIV has been showing its ugly ass in my circle far too much. A very dear friend of mine has it and... I made a promise I'd be safe.

    I tried it.....I'd rather just stay home and jerkoff by myself.

    Your chances of getting HIV from oral unless you are swallowing is like minimal....this is of course as long as your are not brushing your teeth right before or flossing, no canker sores, etc.

    People who get HIV who say it is from oral I feel are lying 90% of the time.....they just are too embarassed to say they forgot to wrap it fucking.

    Actually as the saying at the center went... "Spit or Swallow but never Wallow". Cum guzzling as fun as it might be for some... yeah you give the virus a direct line in to your blood stream through your gums.

    I totally agree.....I don't swallow but this guy a while ago used to blow me a lot. He was "str8" just liked sucking dick. He'd swallow then run to bathroom spit then brush...then I was like ummm dude you should never do that if someone has something u are just rubbing it in.

    I'd say a couple of hours before, just to be safe. . .

    And on the condom note, I'm sorry. . .I feel like they are unneccessary for oral sex. Sucking on a latex bag is far from enjoyable for either partner, I'd rather just jerk off.

    But, oral sex is pretty much considered "safe sex" when it comes to H.I.V. - any "reported" cases of someone contracting it through oral sex have been subject to a great deal of skepticism, as people frequently lie about their sexual practices to paint a better picture, and a lot of the time people don't just practice oral sex, they engage in other activities as well.

    VividCrop saidI went to school for dental assisting and there was a classmate of mine who did a presentation about kissing and HIV transmission and it turns out that if you make out for an extended period of time your saliva will eventually start to break down your gums and put you at risk. Not sure if I believe that entirely.


    Not sure I believe that either. Even without making out, my gums are continually swimming in saliva, and they don't break down because of it.

    I totally agree, reason why I do not engage, most guys here have not done their research, even pre-cum carries all stds including aids.

    I recall reading stomach acidity pretty much kills the virus. So main risk is any open cuts in the mouth (as so many have stated).

    a hibiclens mouthwash will kill anything. however if you use it alot, it will stain your teeth and they will have to be whitened professionally.
    and you need a script for chlorhexidine in oral mouthwash form. Most dentists will not even write for it.

    They never taught us this in dental school. I'd say that having good oral hygiene and a healthy mouth would be your best defense.

    The only thing is that with a virus there is nothing to kill. It needs to be able to break down the protien coating that surrounds the RNA. Only thing that destroys the vector is Oxygen.
