What you run into, though, is if you say to a guy who comes in, "Well, it's very low" and then the next guy, "It's very, very low," they go out and it's "Well, what's very low compared to very, very low" and they say "Two 'verys' and one 'very'", and you could say, "Very, very, very low" Can I ask one question before I forget this: Can HIV be transmitted through oral sex fellatio and cunnilingus?
