Ask Dr. K
KISSING = RISKY?

QUESTION
Is kissing a risky behavior for STDs?

ANSWER
Kissing poses no significant risk for STDs. Other activities like mutual masturbation and dry humping (sometimes called frottage) are also considered safer sex activities with little to no risk for sexually transmitted diseases. Kiss away!
