Oral sex is becoming an increasingly common practice especially in at University campuses because of the belief that it is safer. However, unprotected oral sex carries risk of STDs such as oral herpes, throat Chlamydia, yeast infection, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis A, hepatitis E, HIV and HPV. Herpes I, Herpes II and Chlamydia are the most common diseases passed on through oral sex. Preventative strategies for STD transmission involve ensuring that the partner is not infected, using protection which is available even for oral sex and avoid any sort of sex during infectious stages of the condition. Studies show that up to 25% of college students have an STD of which HPV, herpes and Chlamydia are the most common.
