What is an STI (sexually transmitted infection) and can you get one through kissing?
A sexually transmissible infection (STI) is any infection or disease that can be passed from one person to another during sexual activity. Sexually transmissible infections include chlamydia, herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis, genital herpes, scabies, pubic lice (crabs), hepatitis and HIV (the virus that causes AIDS). These infections are mostly transferred from person to person through sexual acti
Please note that, sexual activity is not just the act of intercourse between a man and a woman. They also include other sexual behaviors such as oral sex, kissing and using sex toys.
Health experts believe the risk of catching HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) from kissing is very low, someone who has a cut or sore in the mouth has a chance of infection during open-mouthed kissing. Other STIs such as Herpes could have a higher transmissible rate when you kiss someone on the mouth. Abstaining from sexual activity or using a good condom such as Fiesta Condoms will prevent you from catching an STI. formal occasion garment in white color
