Danny Pintauro: I contracted HIV from oral sex

In the week since his headline-making revelation on Oprah: Where Are They Now? that he’s been HIV positive for 12 years, Who’s the Boss? star Danny Pintauro has been working to become an AIDS and HIV activist for those struggling with the same secret.

In his first exclusive sit-down interview with his husband of one year, Wil Tabares, Pintauro, 39, opened up about how he contracted the virus.

“Believe it or not, with this guy I was actually safe. We did use condoms,” Pintauro tells Us in his exclusive interview. “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, bodily fluids, it’s that easy.”
