penis to vagina/anus frottage
Nov 19, 2006
would a brief "pokey-pokey" of the vagina and anus before putting on a condom lead to any risk of transmission? no entry, just rubbing... i'm a bit nervous about this, even though i was protected during intercourse... please help!

Well there is "pokey-pokey" and then there is "pokey-pokey," if you know what I mean. "Pokey-pokey" that's part of "hokey-pokey-strokey foreplay" and was indeed "no entry, just rubbing" is not a problem as far as HIV transmission is concerned. Using a UPS delivery-guy analogy: merely knocking on the door doesn't get the package delivered. I see no cause for alarm, so long as you "do the hokey pokey" and don't put anything in as you turn yourself around. (As the song says, "that's what it's all about!")
Stay safe and you'll stay well.
