tantric massage with genital contact

Jan 5, 2007

hi dr bob. i'm from auckland, new zealand and i have done something stupid. i had a tanric massage from a professional tantric masseuse a a couple months ago with a lady. both of us were naked. at some point i think my peinis may of touched her vagina but i can say without any doubt there was absolutely no penetration. should i be get an hiv test. she didn't have any warts around her genitals. please answer my question cos it is really stressin me out. thanks

Response from Dr. Frascino


The risk of HIV transmission from naked Tantric massage without genital penetration is negligible, even if your "peinis may have touched her vagina" (be it warty or not). However, if you're stressed, get a single HIV test at the three-month mark for a definitive and conclusive answer, OK?

Happy New Year.
