Flamyboyant Hip Gayster

Oct 21, 2007

Hello Darling! I recieved intimate body licking(sans genitals) from a stud I met a the local gay bar(reminded me of you!) I shave all over all the time. This sometimes leads to skin irritation. I had no cuts or bleeding though. No observable nicks. No blood from my guy's mouth just saliva. In your opinion do I need Hiv testing? Stay well Darling.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey there FHG (Flamboyant Hip Gayster),

Now what have I told you about calling me darling in public? Couldn't it be at least Doctor Darling?

The HIV transmission risk from your tongue bath is nonexistent. Saliva doesn't transmit HIV, unless there is visible blood. HIV testing is not warranted.

Be well in all your cosmic fabulosity.

Dr. Bob

Lack of appetite, HIV related?
Misinforming Doctor or Is It Me?
