    Good to know that the telephone can't give me HIV. Slightly worried that a haircut poses a moderate risk though.
    Seen the Monty Python Lumberjack Sketch? Proof that hairdressing with a homicidal-maniac-with-an-irrational-fear-of-hair twist can in some extreme cases lead to the spreading of AIDS, or worse.

    And oral sex does not pose a high risk, according to three doctors I spoke to, and a good few health workers, and contrary to what most people on here say.

    Knob-rot, disgusting a phrase as it may be, does not give someone HIV.

    A number of studies have demonstrated that oral sex can result in the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

    I also have many friends who work in the field of virus transmission and the risk of catching HIV from oral sex is very very small, they said you would have to have a weeping sore or massive cut in your mouth for it to really happen. Some diseases like syphillis however can be very easily transmitted by oral.

    Also I'm confused how HIV can be transmitted by haircutting? :confused:

    i think it's probably in reference to blades being used on an infected person, and accidentally cutting them, and then the blade not being correctly sterilised and then used immediately afterwards on a non-infected person.
    Tbh you're probably quite safe getting a hair cut, if a barber does make a mistake, they should dunk the blade into barbicide, which will kill anything on the blade in an instant!

    See below. What I said, was that it was not a major risk as some people seem to make out.

Some diseases like syphillis however can be very easily transmitted by oral.
    I was told, by a GUM specialist that there was no evidence to show that oral sex caused transmission of HIV, as a) it is a weak virus and b) saliva is there to protect you, and as such works. Another Doctor quoted a figure to me of something like, 1 in well, I don't remember exactly but it was high millions, which is the risk of contracting HIV through oral sex. He said it was a negligible risk.

    Also, the way some people go on on here with their scare mongering tactics is pathetic. The main way that HIV is spread in this country now is (quote) through travel (unquote GUM specialist). Even then, there are only 40,000 people in this country with HIV - you can't get it from someone who doesn't have it, but the way some on here go on, you'd think either everyone had it, or you could get it from someone who didn't.

    Another thing this specialist told me is that research does not show that HIV can be transmitted by oral sex. That’s mainly because the majority of people don’t have oral sex with big minging cuts in their mouth, the transmission there is about exchange of bodily fluids, not the oral sex. I didn’t know, so I checked it out, and as such I don’t have a problem. Even if I hadn’t checked it out, I still wouldn’t have a problem, why? Because it’s a tiny risk, because the only person I’ve ever been with is low risk, and because I didn’t have cuts in my mouth when I was with him. The big one? He doesn’t have HIV, you can’t get it off someone who doesn’t have it. It’s not a case of, the people who don’t know how it’s transmitted always get it, as the last line of your post seems to suggest.
