I am a 23 HIV+ female, my boyfriend and I always have protected sex --- he is negative. He recently confided in me that he finds it sexually stimulating to smell my vaginal secretions on my underwear after I have worn and removed them. I am concerned that since vaginal secretions will transmit the virus that he may be putting himself a risk. Thank you for your reply.

I cannot imagine that this behavior carries any risk for the transmission of HIV. Please visit The Body's Safe Sex and HIV Prevention Forum for numerous discussions about risk associated with a variety of behaviors.
