Masturbation, Dried Bodily Fluids

Mar 5, 2007

In most hotels, the quilts are not washed between each stay. Say a person masturbates upon the quilt. Although there are no visible bodily fluids upon the quilt, is it likely that the person could contract HIV from an unseen dried bodily fluid on the quilt? (In addition, assume that at least 14 hours has passed since anybody was in the room.)

Response from Dr. Frascino


You're worried about "unseen dried bodily fluids on a quilt" in a hotel room transmitting HIV/AIDS??? Oh my . . . well I suppose I should be grateful you aren't also terrified of touching the hotel room doorknob or parking your tush on the communal commode! Oh, you are indeed worried about those things too?????? Yeah, I should have seen it coming. Speaking of "coming," you should have no worries about previous guests cumming before you arrive. A previously spunked hotel quilt is not an HIV risk, even at the No-Tell Motel.
