Jill Grimes' STD quiz

4. Oral sex:

ANSWER: B. Is a common means of transmitting herpes.

Oral sex can transmit most STDs, including herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis. Condoms would reduce this transmission rate significantly. If there are open sores in the mouth, this would make it possible to also transmit HIV and hepatitis B and C. Trichomonas is not spread by oral sex.
