3:TH TIME help me please! Brushing penis and insertive oral

Aug 16, 2003

Hi, I have asked this question 3 times and I have not got any answer. I am scared to death I can't sleep or eat!!

2 moths ago I had insertive oral sex with a man of unknown HIV status. I even brushed my penis against his anus, I didn't penetrated him and I didn't have an erection when I brushed my penis against his anus, I did this for ca. 10-15 seconds!

In the red cross says that even kisses are dangerous and I got more anxious after I been speaking with them!

Please help me give some advice, how high are the risk when you brush your penis against the somebody's anus.

Response from Dr. Frascino


The technical term for what you describe is frottage. It does not pose a risk for HIV transmission. Just think of it like the UPS guy. Just knocking on the door does not get a package delivered, right? In your case, no penetration means no problem, no matter how big your package.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
