Sexual practices of all groups of people have been under the microscope since the first discovery of HIV/AIDS. Most of the data has been related to gay and bisexual men and the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and HIV/AIDS. This paper argues that there is a group of people that also have a risk of transmitting STDs who have not been studied extensively. This group is the lesbian and bisexual woman.

From the Paper:

"While the incidence of STDs may not be as great, that, by no means, indicates a low risk factor. The lack of knowledge about the transmission of diseases is a factor in the prevalence of transmission. There seems to be a lack of printed information about the transmission of STDs in the lesbian community. Additionally, the lack of communication in the lesbian community with each other about these increasing risks leads to unsafe sexual practices. As with heterosexual partners, the possibility of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases through oral sex seems to come as a surprise to many people."
