So, would you??
Depends on what she looked like-----( where do you get these questions anyway Joz?)
I don't know what that means: blood based.
Semen is produced in the male reproductive organs. Blood comes from your marrow.
No, semen is used because it has cells within it that contain DNA => sperm. Spermatozoa are an excellent source of DNA because of their relatively small size yet compartively large amount of internal nuclear material with respect to other types of cells.
Semen itself is mostly water and salts, and is produced by seminal vesicles, which is completely different than the way blood is formed.
HIV can survive in the mucous membranes which surround all of your bodily orifices.
Sounds like ya got yourself pretty sealed off there Joz!
Now THAT is a good question----but many have answered "yes" and risk their lives EVERYDAY to protect us. A true test of love? Maybe.
I was talking about our troops
It's a good self measurement question tho-----I saw a friend get into some water and thought he would most certainly drown--I didn't jump in and thank God he made it---I became very humble that day.
Well, if you are giving mouth-to-mouth to someone, you may end up spitting in their mouth, but the odds of you contracting HIV from them are pretty miniscule.
First, they have to have HIV.
Second, the HIV has to be sufficiently advanced.
Third, they have to posses an open sore in their mouth (HIV can survive in mucous membranes, but it does not live there).
Fourth, you'd have to get a whole lot of their spit in your mouth.
Fifth, you have to have an open sore in your mouth.
Six, you'd have to not use listerine after the fact.
Actually, I answered 'probably'.
My point in the last post was that by you giving someone else mouth-to-mouth, you aren't really exchanging saliva.
What little transfer there is would be from you to them.
So if you have HIV you should let someone else give them mouth-to-mouth if you are really that concerned about it.
