Unique rubbing question

May 21, 2003


Is rubbing your penis up against someones anus before any anal fingering or anal sex a way of transmitting hiv?

Response from Mr. Kull

Sorry, not so unique.

HIV is not known to be transmitted through grinding, rubbing, whatever you want to call it. You are at risk for infection when engaging in insertive or receptive anal sex with an HIV infected person.


I'm being careful but sometimes get confused.
