Awkward question. I have this bizarre fetish that involves someone spitting in my face, even mouth. Not a smart thing to do, and disturbing to be sure, but just how risky is this behavior? What kinds of diseases might I get this way, even if the other person seems to be healthy?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
If this behaviour persists for more than 4 weeks then it can lead to perversions and other psychiatric disorders. Consult psychiatrist to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

But here are a few facts that you need to know about infections that can occur due to saliva.

Infections, such as mononucleosis (the kissing disease), caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Hepatitis B and cytomegalovirus (CMV) are spread via oral transmission from virus-containing saliva.

Hepatitis A or C is highly unlikely to be transmitted with saliva (while kissing), but they can be transmitted via saliva / spit in mouth.

Cold sores due to HSV-1 infections are spread more due to open sores on the lips and those near the mouth, rather than saliva. The infection is most contagious when the sore is open and leaking fluid.

If you have any doubts about possible infections, consult a doctor in person and seek a proper medical opinion.

I hope this helps.
