6. Is deep kissing a route of HIV transmission?

Deep or open-mouth kissing is a very low risk activity in terms of HIV transmission.

There has been only one documented case someone becoming infected with HIV through kissing; a result of exposure to infected blood during open mouthed-kissing.

If you and partner have open wounds in your mouth, you should avoid kissing until wound has healed.
