unshared sex toy

Dec 7, 2003

Activity: Foreplay where pre-cum gets on hands, dries quickly. Using the same hands to insert dildo in rectum. What are the risks? Is abstenince and testing needed? Thank-you. Tried to make short and sweet. Doing a great service keep it up.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Thanks for keeping the question brief and focused rather than going on and on about how hot your partner was and the exact size, shape and vibrating potential of your dildo, blah, blah, blah. The HIV transmission risk from the "unshared sex toy" scenario you describe, even with the foreplay and pre-cum, is essentially nonexistent. HIV testing is not needed. That should also answer the abstinence question. OK? Now that we have that settled, tell us about how hot your partner was and the exact size, shape, and vibrating potential of your dildo.

Stay well. Stay safe.
