Contracting HIV from stripper

Jul 6, 2004


Just a few nights ago I visited a strip club and got a lap dance. In this particular club the strippers place a dishtowel over lap before they sit on you. When the stripper got up for a second, I touched the towel because it wasn't centered on my lap. I then itched my eye. I have no idea whether this woman has HIV, but if she did would I be at risk for contracting it?


Response from Dr. Horwath

You are suffering from anxiety and possibly guilt too. I don't see how you could become HIV in this way.

twisted firestarter
HIV positive and stressed out
