dear dr A prostitute rubbed her saliva on my penis for lubrication but did not take my penis in her mouth. Further more we had sex with a condom.Can a disease be transmitted by just the saliva as i did not insert my penis in her mouth

Response from Mr. Kull

HIV is not known to be transmitted through contact with saliva. Please see Saliva as a barrier for more information.
