    Most of them can't be spread through saliva. Some of them can be spread by skin-to-skin contact though (usually genital skin). And yes oral if there is any contact with body fluids or skin.

    Really, if one person has a cankersore and has oral sex with your genitals they can spread that form of herpes to your genitals. No joke. And vice versa. If there is the herpes virus present on genitals and the other person is having oral sex they may contract herpes from the infected genitals.

    Many other STDs though need that internal contact to be able to transmit the disease properly.

    If your partner were to have an oral cut from which blood was able to mix with the saliva, then yes you could contract STDs from kissing if your partner has them. All STDs can be transferred by most bodily fluids and especially blood.

    It depends on the STD. Though most require genital contact, Gonorrhea for example can infect the throat, and can then be passed to your partner through deep kissing. Herpes of course can be passed this way too - although genital herpes and herpes simplex (cold sores) are different viruses, genital herpes can be passed to your partners lips, and the cold sore virus can be passed to your genitals.

    Oral sex is bad, you can get herpes in your mouth and around your lips...be safe
