    How is gonorrhea contracted? Can you get it if you only indulge in oral sex?

    The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has an excellent fact sheet on Gonorrhea -
    STD Facts - Gonorrhea

    Gonorrhea is spread through contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus. Ejaculation does not have to occur for gonorrhea to be transmitted or acquired. Gonorrhea can also be spread from mother to baby during delivery.

    People who have had gonorrhea and received treatment may get infected again if they have sexual contact with a person infected with gonorrhea.

    Yes, you can receive gonorrhea from oral sex.

    You can read more from the womenshealth website - Gonorrhea

    You can get it through oral sex sure. It is contracted via sex, whether it be genital sex, oral sex or anal sex.
