Does talking to prostitute or just hanging around will get HIV?
Oct 16, 2001

I hang around where prostitutes are soliciting customers, and sometimes talk to them. Sometimes I will be eating food may be a prostitute sitting across the table. But I never indulge anymore with them. But for just window shopping hand around there.

Does this pose any risk of HIV? or other STD transmission?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

People get HIV from sex or infected blood. Just talking to people and 'hanging around' poses no risk whatsoever of getting HIV or any other STD.

I am a bit Confused!
