Donation Made- Please Answer...

Nov 29, 2008

Hi Dr. Frascino,

I just made a donation to your foundation. Verisign #xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and I have a quick question.

I recently had protected (latex condom) vaginal intercourse with a female of unknown HIV status. However, she wanted me to ejaculate on her chest so I took off the condom to accomplish this.

My question is, if her vaginal fluids were on my hands while I began to stimulate myself is this an HIV transmission risk?

Thanks so much Dr. for all your help!

Best Wishes,


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Paul,

The HIV-transmission risk would be so remote that it becomes essentially nonexistent. If my reassurance is not enough for you to shake your HIV worries, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. It's not medically warranted, but if it puts your residual worries permanently to rest, it will be worth it psychologically.

Thanks for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( It's warmly appreciated.

Be well.

Dr. Bob
