Please please help me, I cant live like this

Jul 30, 2003

Please help me Ryan. I need some help from you. Im so anxious I cant live a normal life. Please tell me the risks in the follwoing scenario. I visited a lap dancing bar where I received protected oral (BJ). All the behind the sceens work is in a small room with one couch. My concern is the risk of exposure by sitting naked on this couch. I imagine it has seen alot of action. Please help me. I have a constant bloated stomach with wind and im obsessed with the fact im hiv infected. Its completely taking over my life. Your reply is very much appreciated. I cant thank you enough for the resources this site provide.

Response from Mr. Kull

According to the CDC, HIV is not transmitted through casual contact (sitting on a sofa) nor is it transmitted through contact with saliva (receiving oral sex).
