Aids from Giving Handjob

Aug 4, 2004

Hello, I recently gave a handjob to a stranger and his semen came in contact with a very small but "open" cuticle. Besides the fact that I have been constantly beating myself up over the first homosexual encounter (I'm a married man), I am also driving myself crazy thinking that I might have put myself at risk. Is this worry realistic? Thank you very much in advance.

Response from Dr. Frascino


No, your worry is not realistic. Your problem seems to be the guilt associated with your first homosexual encounter. I strongly recommend you get counseling to help you sort out your sexual identity concerns, as well as your irrational fears of HIV.

Good luck. Feel better.
