what possible std can you get from giving a man a blow job? can one pick up an std orally even if you do NOT have cuts in your mouth and lastly would a rotten tooth (not filled or not filled properly) be as dangerous as a cut to pick up something like HIV if the man had this? also if one should pick up herpes orally how soon afterwards would it show would it be with sores on the mouth and how would this affect ones general and overall health other than sores?
