I am a heterosexual woman, ive just met a man that I am very intrested in hes told me that hes hiv +. And that he hasnt been with a women since before he was diagnosed in the 80's. This is all very confusing to me yet I find myself drawn to him. What should or shouldnt I do with him sexually. Additionally what does this mean for him.. Life span ..General health etc, I know nothing about hiv or having a relationship with a bisexual man. Pls advise...Or direct me to another source.

The risks of giving oral sex to a man are low, and indeed debateable. Without ejaculation, i'd go as far as to say that there is no real risk. The risks centre around the fact that there are mucous membranes in the tonsil region of the mouth - not as receptive as the vagina, urethra or rectum, but nevertheless present. So, all in all, i'd say it was wise to use a condom. There have been a couple of reports of infection having occured this way; it is noteworthy however that in these cases it is very likely that the people had very poor oral hygeine: bleeding gums, numerous infected sores etc.
In conclusion - not really much of a risk at all, but its up to you.
