SYPHILIS FROM ORAL SEX?
Unprotected oral sex, however, can expose you to other STDs. Gonorrhea and chlamydia infections in a partnerís throat, for example, could transmit that infection to your penis. Similarly, a partner with a syphilis lesion in his mouth could pass that infection to your penis through oral sex. Gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis infections of the penis can be passed to a partnerís mouth or throat.
For many people, unprotected oral sex is considered an acceptable level of risk since the potentially transmitted infections are curable. You'll have to decide what is acceptable for you. I encourage you to look at our STD charts and to use always use condoms during sex. The STD charts will show you risk factors involved for HIV and STD transmission with different types of sexual activity.
