Oral sex - two females
Posted on: 10/31/2006
My girlfriend and I are both strict virgins (both girls too). We had previously been best friends and neither of us had ever had previous partners sexual or not. I know there is the possibility of STI's through oral sex, but both of us are clean and we haven't inherited anything either.
I would like to know if it is possible that either of us could catch and STI/STD from Oral sex if we have never had STI's before or previous partners. Is it possible that I might have something? How high is the risk, then?
I fear my paranoia about STI's will put a restriction on our relationships, as we are still even yet to come out to our parents.
Woman-to-woman sex of all kinds has the lowest risk for transmission of all sexually transmitted infections, although herpes is a risk. If neither of you have ever had sex (any kind), then the risk is extremely low. You can still practice safer sex though - using a dental dam (thin latex sheet used between genitals and mouth) for oral sex.
