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- that’s WHY flavored condoms exist, to be used with oral sex. 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.
