06/27/2005

Question:

i have been dating a boy for the past three months. i thought we were monogamous except i recently found out that he has been giving and receiving oral sex from men as well, on occasion. i am reluctant to confront him about this topic b/c he doesn`t know i found out. my question though is am i putting myself at risk if i continue to kiss, have intercourse, or perform oral sex on him? if so, what are the risks?
