    Yeah. You can only catch it once.

    Nah, was just kidding. In the armed forces, we make sick jokes like that every day, and it's considered normal. Think I was a bit drunk when I typed that!

    OH GOD I READ THE QUESTION WRONG!!!! I MEANT YES! I MEANT YES!!!

    HIV Cannot be spread through saliva unless the virus suddenly mutates and becomes strong enough to live through saliva.

    Hmm you do know HIV transfers by bodily fluids right (except saliva etc)? Not physical contact. That said you can kiss people with HIV just because they have it doesn't mean they are different. Also go learn some grammar, might help

    People who vote "no" might not be able to get over the psychological part of it, or they might just be extra careful. You never know, they could have a cut on their lip (depends how intense this kissing gets as well, could have a cut inside their mouth somewhere). Yes, it's unlikely but it's HIV we're talking about. Can't be too careful.

    Still the chances of having a cut on the lip or in the mouth is unlikely, and obviously your you where kissing them you'd know them which means they know you and that means they'd tell you if they were cut so. Common sense

    not at all.
    "they'd tell you if they were cut so"
    Most of the times STDs spreads because of ignorance. Love the people not the disease. Thats why you and only you can watch yourself and protect yourself.
  • MAZ142 jackie 2012/06/18 03:07:05

    Fair but still the fact is if they loved you they'd tell you.
  • La MAZ142 2012/06/18 12:26:25

    Do you love everyone you kiss?
  • MAZ142 La 2012/06/18 14:23:04
    MAZ142
    Well our definition of love is different then and obviously if its a stranger you wouldn't. Thats self explanitory but thats because I don't know them.

    No I dont want anything to do with any one who has HIV period.. All though you only catch it thru blood....like a sore would have to be present in the mouth....but still I dont have it and dont want it. I wouldnt even date some one that has hiv. Lucky me I dont have to worry about that anyways.
  • caius madison 2012/06/16 16:37:07

    But not if their lips had sore on them. The virus cannot be transferes orally unless an open sore is present or a ridiculously large amount of the infected's saliva is ingested. However, this is purely subjective, because I know no-one with it.

    First, to all the people going "urr how is there HIV only on the lips?" You are reading the question wrong, it's asking if you would kiss a person on the lips who is infected with the HIV virus.

    And yes, unless they were bleeding out of their mouth or had open sore.. In that case they would still get a hug!

    We've spent millions of dollars on AIDS and HIV awareness, yet people are still sooo ignorant about it.

    but how would they have HIV on the lips, its only through blood and other fluids. I assume you meant a different version were it could be passed.....

    cold sores? cracked lips?
  • Happy Dave Sa... 2012/06/16 15:51:41

    Cold Sores are a type of Herpes, not HIV.

    And what does the "H" in HIV stand for?
  • Happy Dave Sa... 2012/06/16 16:30:48

    Human Immunodeficiency Virus, not herpes.

    Thanks.
    But there IS a connection:

    Herpes and HIV infection

    Recent infection with genital herpes ulcers increases the chances of a person being infected with HIV.

    In people with HIV, especially if they have a weak immune system, herpes attacks tend to be more frequent, more severe and last longer. Sometimes the lesions can become infected with other bacteria or fungi. As well as causing large oral and genital lesions, herpes can occasionally affect the throat, stomach and other organs including the liver, eye and lung. Herpes encephalitis is inflammation of the brain, causing headache, nausea, mental changes, loss of co-ordination and seizures; this is rare in people with HIV but potentially fatal if it does occur.

    An HIV-positive person who has herpes ulcers which last for four weeks or longer is diagnosed as having AIDS. It is thought that herpes may act as a 'co-factor' in HIV disease progression, activating HIV and making it easier for HIV to infect certain cells.

    "genital herpes ulcers", that is not the same herpes on your lips, they are separate, the strand on your lips is something everyone has at one point, while not many have the genital strand. Both Genital herpes and H.I.V are sexually transmitted diseases which is why there is a connection, the herpes on your lips is not sexually transmitted.

    HIV can only be transmitted through sex and blood transfusions.

    The Red Cross is revising their questionnaire for blood donations and they have been using outdated science.

    The HIV element is irrelevant. I wont kiss anyone apart from my wife on the lips.
  • Anne 2012/06/16 13:56:01

    because I have a boyfriend. And you can't have HIV on your lips unless their HIV infected blood is all over their lips. Even then, your lips would need to be cut open so his blood could mix with your blood. at which point, I wouldn't kiss anyone who had blood all over their lips when my lips had open cuts all over them. ew.
  • Kibbles 2012/06/16 13:54:10

    If they had sores no, also if they were bleeding no but HIV isn't contracted just by skin on skin contact.

    you don't get HIV from kissing somebody

    It isnt Actually HIV HIV (AIDS) is and )acquired immune deficiancy syndrome) The sores on the lips and around the mouth are more than likely.
    Herpes simplex virus (HSV) Type 1, which causes blisters on the lips, is fairly common in the general population and even more so in people living with HIV
    One should not kiss anyone with any type sore on their lips....

    I think it is inappropriate for an HIV patient to even try. If I had it, I wouldnt expect a kiss nor want to take that risk.
