Danny Pintauro reveals he contracted HIV through oral sex

Child star Danny Pintauro has revealed that he contracted the HIV virus through oral sex.

The actor, who stared in 80s sitcom Who’s The Boss? revealed last month, in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, that he has been HIV positive for 12 years, and had also fought an addiction to crystal meth.

He told Us Weekly: “Believe it or not, with this guy I was actually safe, we did use condoms. I got it another way, which was through oral sex.

“When you put all of these nasty things together, like a compromised immune system; having been up for a long time; drugs; rough sex – all of that combined with lesions in your mouth maybe, or bodily fluids mixing – it’s that easy.”

He said he’s also trying to get into contact with the man he encountered: “Mostly I just want to find out if he’s okay, the lifestyle he was leading was really irresponsible and I just want to see if he survived.”

Danny has since kicked off his Beacon of Light Tour, which aims to spread awareness about HIV and the dangers of drug use.
