The answer is no.

This is your fourth question in 3 months, your third in a month, all on HIV risk from oral sex or kissing. Please note the forum does not permit repeated questions on the same topic or exposure. This will have to be your last one; future new questions along these lines will be deleted without reply and without refund of the posting fee. This policy is based on compassion, not criticism, and is designed to reduce temptations to keep paying for questions with obvious answers. In addition, experience shows that continued answers tend to prolong users' anxieties rather than reducing them. Finally, such questions have little educational value for other users, one of the forum's main purposes. Thank you for your understanding.
