( not sure if I used my tongue during kiss but assuming I did and it was passionate ) I just wanted to be clear as you mentioned that French Kissing is No STI/STDs risk activity except the possibility of HSV 1 .
2) About open mouth / french kissing and oral gonorrhea possibilities , given that it is already 3 years since my exposure and i never had any symptoms should i be worried. Also my urine test for gonorrhea was negative. I read in one of your post that gonorrhea/oral Gonorrhea is cleared by the immune system in a few weeks to sometimes a few months.
This was just bothering me and hence the clarification pls.
