uh............ i masturbated after my fingers and hands touched a public computer... is there a risk for any std, or hiv.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Uh . . . so perhaps you're wondering if the public computer was having unsafe sex or sharing intravenous needles with the previous user???

Dude (or Dudette), be reasonable. If HIV were spread that easily, it would have wiped out the entire planet years ago.

The short answer to your question is no! The longer answer is nope!

Dr. Bob

Wooohooo !!
Please, read this (I don't need a response!)
