Willing to donate but first a Q

Jan 5, 2005

Dr. Bob, I read your responses and you do great work for people, for that I would like info on how to donate to your organization.

However, I do have questions. What is the HIV risk in receiving anal oral sex? And secondly a couple of weeks ago I mutually masturbated with a guy. He had precum on the tip of his penis and then he wipe it off with hands and rubbed it in his fingers before touching my penis. I don't remember his hands being wet. I am circumcized and I do not remember having any cuts. What are the risks in that? I am currently experiencing headaches and ear aches...could this be related? These two encounters are freaking me out. Please please please respond and post as well as send me info on where I can donate.

Response from Dr. Frascino


There have been no recorded cases of getting HIV from rimming (anal oral sex) or getting rimmed.

Next, mutual masturbation, with or without pre-cum, is not considered a significant risk factor for HIV transmission.

Next, your symptoms are not consistent with HIV.

Finally, thank you for your willingness to make a donation to my foundation. Donation information can be found on the Foundation's Web site at I also want to remind all our readers that while donations are always appreciated, they are absolutely voluntary and not related to my work here at The Body. So, although your donations will provide much needed help to those struggling with HIV/AIDS, they have not influence over which questions are selected for posting.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Disgruntled Pete here one last time with a much belated apology.
