|AIDS with contact from Underwear
Dec 3, 2001
Hi, I am very worried and have searched all the questions prior to sending you this and haven't found my problem. There have been closely related questions but not exact. My question is I am very worried about getting aids from something I did. One night I had a friend stay over (girl) and she changed and left her underwear on my floor in the bathroom. I went in there and picked them up, pressed them to my face and smelled the crotch area. I realize this was a very dumb move and will never do something like this again. My question is how concerned should I be about getting aids from this. Please respond as soon as you can, I am very worried.
