New Jelly Dildo and HIV Risk

Aug 16, 2005

Even after reading several of other posts I am not sure if my question has been answered. I used a new store bought jelly dildo after washing it twice with soap and water lightly. I had nevere seen a dildo before and the jelly dildo seemed to have some black stuff on its base which I washed clean. I do not know if all jelly dildos have discolorations like the one I had. I am worried to death as I used it without a condom. Only after reading on the internet I realized that I should have used a condom over it. The dildo looked new and was dry (although soft because of the jelly). I did this just to get back on my husband after a fight. I have had only one partner all my life (my husband) and have never engaged in any of the sex toy activities. And probably that is the reason that I just bought a good looking pink dildo (Benwa's My Angel)without any specific information on dildo use and safety. Should I get tested for HIV after 3 months? I checked with the store, they do not accept returns and so I assume that the one that I used was a new one. Thanks for your help.

A stupid MOM of two.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey Mom of Two,

"Benwa's My Angel" . . . hmmm . . . not a bad choice, but Charlotte on Sex and the City preferred "The Rabbit."

Yes, Mom of Two, indeed your question has indeed been answered several times. Have a look in the archives. So rather than reiterate all the information there, I'll just mention there is no HIV-transmission risk from a new dildo, be it an Angel or Horny Devil. HIV testing is not warranted.

Now I have a question for you: exactly how is using a pink jelly dildo getting back at your husband??? I bet lots of dudes right now are thinking your husband is one lucky guy.

Stay well. Be good to your angel and he'll be good to you.

Dr. Bob
