siclilian guy

Mar 8, 2004

Dear doc i'am an 33y old boy; i had a men perform oral sex on my(penis was mine); during this he scrape me (scratches my glande with his 2 day beard). i ask to you : what kind of risk i ran? thank you from sicily

Response from Dr. Frascino


OK Southern Italian Stallions can have impressive (and very sexy) two-day stubble. I'll agree with that. (Perhaps it's related to our high testosterone levels?) However, the beard friction is not a risk for HIV transmission. Your risk remains the same as others who had insertive oral sex extremely low. I see no additional risk.

I'll let you know if I change my opinion after my visit to Sicily in June.
