Dr. Bob,

I've read some conflicting information on the web....the other night I was fooling around with another man, he wanted to urinate on me. Although it wasn't much, some did get in my mouth. Am I at risk for contracting any STDs?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Urine is a sterile fluid, i.e. free of germs. As such, it would not transmit STDs, including HIV. Golden showers may not be to everyone's liking, but they are not considered an STD/HIV risk.
