pimples and hiv

Sep 1, 2004

A few minutes after mastubating herself, my girlfriend began popping some zits on my back. Can HIV be transmitted from her fingers to me as a result of her popping the pimples?

Response from Dr. Frascino


I've heard of cuddling in the afterglow, taking a nap, smoking a cigarette, or putting the cap back on the little brown bottle, but your girlfriend's behavior strikes me as somewhat odd. She gets herself all hot and bothered and then decides to "pop zits on your back?" I must say that visual image is more than a bit unappetizing. What happens when you give her oral sex?" does she get so excited she decides to lick the boogers out of your nose? Actually, maybe I don't really want to know the answer to that question, so I'll just answer your question instead, OK?

Post-orgasmic zit popping is not a risk for HIV.
