Yes, you can get HIV from oral sex. The majority of HIV infections are acquired through unprotected sex. Sexual transmission can occur when infected sexual secretions of one partner come into contact with the GENITAL, ORAL, or RECTAL mucous membranes of another. Please refer to and read the following link, the information I provided is listed under Transmission and Sexual.

I think they do warn people that it is a possibility that you can get it from oral sex. You also are at risk of hep a and hep b. They suggest you use a dental dam to prevent exposure to unwanted diseases.

Yes, if you go to South Africa they even go as far to say you can get HIV from Kissing. Many of their pharmacy bags state ways to get HIV and kissing is one of them. But we are told here in the states no. Who is right and who is wrong?
HIV can be transmitted by blood, sliva, and sex.
Think about this; if you had dynamite in your hand. Just because it does not have a fuse, does this mean it can not go off.
How about static electricity?
BOOM !!
You want to take the chance?
