They can be spread by kissing, and oral-genital contact. You can do oral sec before it is removed. But you should always ask your partner to use condoms when you do oral sex. You may also use dental dams. After it is removed, you should ask him to use condoms or use dental dams because there is a possibility that the viruses are still there after it is removed.
