Any Kind of Sex Can Spread Zika, CDC Says in Updated Guidance

(NBC News) Any kind of sex can spread the Zika virus, federal health officials said
Several recent new cases show that just about any kind of sexual contact can spread the virus, the CDC said. "Sexual exposure includes vaginal sex, anal sex, oral sex, or other activities that might expose a sex partner to genital secretions," it says in the new guidance.
"All other couples in which a partner (male or female) has been in an area with Zika can also reduce the risk of sexual transmission by using condoms or abstaining from sex. Sex includes vaginal, anal and oral sex, and may also include the sharing of sex toys."
