Where are the doubtful women?

Sep 30, 2005

where are all the women doubts? I am sure women must have doubts as well. Am I the only concerned women or am i not able to find them in the archive?

Anyways i have a few questions that i will greatly appreciate if you answer them to bring some sanity in my life as you have done for others.

My sexual exposure to men has been the following:

1. My breasts have been kissed/sucked and fondled with

2. I have been kissed a lot on my cheeks, neck and above my waist but have always completely avoided "open mouth kissing" and have never taken my pants off or have had anyone even touch my vagina

3. I have given "handjobs" and have had pre-cum and semen on my hand.

When anwering point 3 if you answer by saying I could be at risk if I had a "fresh cut" or abrasion on my hand please explain what that means cause a freind told me a "fresh cut" could be as small as not visible to the eye but still be dangerous if exposed to infected fluid.

Thank you so much for your time

One of your few doubtful lady learner

Response from Dr. Frascino


Yes, the dudes do tend to outnumber the dudettes on this forum, but you are far from alone. Check out the archives again and I think you'll find more estrogen than you originally thought. So, on to your questions . . . . Well, actually you didn't really ask any questions. You just described three rather tame "sexual" activities. I'll assume you're wondering about the HIV risk from these. Right ???

1. No risk.

2. No risk.

3. No risk, assuming the skin was intact.

In general, I disagree with your friend. Microscopic cuts would not be a significant risk factor for "handjobs."

Stay well.
