Can I give blood?

Jul 4, 2006

I want to donate blood but it says I can't have had a sexual relationship with a sex worker for a year. I haven't had sex with a sex worker but I have had an erotic massage/body slide. There was no anal/oral/vaginal intercourse, only body robbing and only on my back. I.e she didn't touch my front, only my anus and back and legs with her whole body including vagina and mouth? Would this count as risk or can I donate blood?

Response from Dr. Frascino


"No anal/oral/vaginal intercourse" = no sexual relation! You are free and clear to donate! Roll up that sleeve!

Dr. Bob

you're terrific
