Response from Dr. Reznik
Kissing is considered a safe activity and you should not feel at risk for the encounter mentioned.
I believe the bigger issue is why you would have an HIV test after kissing someone who is HIV positive. The answer to this question may best be addressed by Robert K Remien, Ph.D. who answers questions in the "Mixed-HIV-Status Couples Forum".
Worried and can't sleep or function
