if you said you read every mail, read this

Mar 21, 2006

I've checked the archives countless times but none of them are related to mine. Just think about it doc, just answer this one question and i wouldnt pester you anymore.

I've been worried for over 2 years, scared that i have HIV. Scared to get tested since my parents dont even know i masturbate. I masturbated once in a public restroom in a hotel. I've checked the net, google, almsot every site googled. Posted in many forums. Can i contract HIV by MASTURBATING in a public restroom. Assuming that I could've contracted HIV from the toilet seat or something. A lot of people in health forums said yes but unlikely. Some said yes, some said no, but only a doctor like you could tell. Please help.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Yes, I said I read every question; however, I did not say I answered every question. I'll be brief.

1. No, you cannot contract HIV by masturbating, be it in public restrooms or Bible study classes.

2. Your parents know you masturbate. (After all, they are not headless, you know.)
