    Is it possible to contract STDs through saliva? I was interviewing a homeless and during the conversation I man for a class assignment felt something wet land on my lower lip.

    Depends on the STD! Some are viral, some are bacterial! Viral would require and exchange of bodily fluid (blood, semen, etc)! Bacterial can happen with straight contact! HIV would be a viral disease, chlamydia would be bacterial! As stated above, if there is a cut in your mouth, you can contract it as well! In sum, no, STDs are not transmitted via saliva! But you can contact them from oral sex ;)
