7Famark saidIf oral sex was a real risk of transmission (provided you aren't massively bleeding orally) - then everyone and their fucking mother would have it.
That's based on the idea that everyone's having oral sex, which everyone isn't. Don't assume everyone's life is your own, and I don't say that to make an allegation, but I'm asking a very serious medical and scientific question, so unless you have the science to support what you're saying, I don't see why anyone should believe you.
7Famark saidNo studies have ever conclusively proven that oral sex was the route of transmission - people that had reported it as their only act later came out and said they engaged in other activites.
You're right about that, but does that mean no one has ever aquired HIV that way? The answer is no. Besides that, we haven't even defined "oral sex." Does it mean swallowing the ejaculate? Can anyone get it that way? What if they spit it out? Are the odds changed?
Then there's the matter of knowing that statistical research about this is based around someone telling the truth, the full truth, and nothing but the truth about their sexual history, which you already established that several people don't.
I'm having a hard time even imagining how a scientist could conclusively prove oral sex was a route of transmission. Think about it. That only way to know that would be to line uninfected people up paired with the infected, and see what happens, but that's too unethical to be done. The only other way is to find someone who is HIV negative, who later blows an HIV positive person, and is telling the truth about that being the only
sex act they've commited in the time since their last STD screening. Has that ever happened? It's not documented, but does it even sound likely? What are the odds that you'd go a while without sex, get screened, then the one
person you meet is HIV positive, and the one
thing you do is blow him, and then you get screened and found HIV positive. The rareity of that circumstance contributes to why it's not documented. Not only that, but everyone might just say the person is lying about their sexual history.
Lastly, consider how much of a self fulfilling prophacy this "safer sex" advice is. If you run around the globe giving out blowjobs like candy, and you're convinced that you can't get HIV that way because of what someone on RJ said, then you're not going to get tested. Let's say you then have anal sex. Well now you're afraid that you might have HIV, so you get tested and find out that you've got it. Now, can you know that you got it from the anal sex? No, but you'll assume as much based on what you already think, which is that oral sex couldn't have possibly have infected you.
Everyone on this forum sounds so sure of themselves, but that's not how doctors feel. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0738399198001396
Let me pose this question a different way. What's stopping you from getting HIV through oral sex?
