grinding and abrasion

Nov 17, 2000

I recently engaged in a bodyslide with a female where grinding took place -- can the rubbing cause an abrasion invisible to the eye that would allow the virus to pass through the skin of the shaft?

Response from Mr. Kull

It seems really unlikely that HIV would be transmitted this way. There are no documented cases of HIV infection occurring through grinding or microscopic abrasions reported to the CDC.


high risk for hiv?
Can you PLEASE help me?
