First let me thank you for your uplifting attitude toward a most difficult disease for all of us. My question regards a kissing exposure. I was in Thailand and "medium" deep kissed a girl from a bar twice but did not go home with her(No sex). I have had neg ELISA @ 2,6,14& 22 weeks. Is it safe to go WoHoo?? Thank you for your time. You are funny as hell by the way!!!

Response from Dr. Frascino


A "medium?" So there werent any large or small sizes available?

No, kissing, even deep kissing, is not a significant HIV risk. The multiple negative ELISA tests out past 3 months confirm this fact. Yes, by all means, WOO-HOO away!

Stay well.
