i know there is a risk to the person giving the oral sex for hiv transmission if there is cuts/sores etc in the persons mouth i want to know if the man is going down on the woman, and he has a cut in his mouth is the risk the same for the women to contract hiv via his cut in his mouth when going down on her? surely the risk is less 2 the women than the other way round ie man with cuts and woman is HIV? he goes dwn on her.? i just need to know that the risk is smaller to contract it via the vagina from man going down with his mouth on woman SHOULD man have hiv, this is not a definite

from mouth to vagina- almost no risk - there is very little hiv in saliva - that is why kissing is safe. on the other hand HIGH risk from vagina to mouth due to all the vaginal secretions ans high possibility of blood contamination of these secretions

Does it realy matter whether the risk is small or great,the fact remains you are at risk.
Just practice safe sex and you should be fine.
