Oral sex is licking or sucking the penis (blow job), vagina (lick-out) or anus (rimming) for sexual pleasure.


Oral sex is medium risk for some STIs, but you can lower this risk even more if you use a condom or dental dam.


You will still be at risk as some STIs are found around the genital area and can be passed on through skin to skin contact.


Sores and cuts in the mouth are also worth looking out for, so check before you explore!


To be safe and lower the risks remember to:


• Always use a fresh condom or dam

• Be careful not to spill any semen when taking the condom off

• Avoid touching the eyes, mouth or any broken skin after ejaculation
