Kiss

Can You Actually Catch An STD From Kissing?

Although rare, but kissing can actually spread certain STDs. While herpes, HPV, syphilis top the list, even HIV can be passed on if both partners have bleeding gums or open sores. Some other common STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea can't be transmitted through kissing, though. To lower your risk, your best bet is to choose your partner wisely and to play it safe!
