What is kissing?

Kissing involves partners touching their lips and/or tongues together.

What we know about kissing:

There's no chance of getting HIV from closed-mouth or "social" kissing, and you can't get HIV through saliva. In some very rare cases, people have gotten HIV from deep, open-mouth "French" kissing because they and their partners had blood in their mouths from bleeding gums or sores (like canker sores). But, the chance of getting HIV from deep, open-mouth kissing is much lower than with most other sexual activities.

What you can do

If you or your sex partner has HIV, and both of you have mouth sores or bleeding gums, you may want to avoid kissing with deep, open-mouth kisses.
