|Semen from rental car in cut?
May 16, 2009
Hello, I was in a rental car last year, and I don't remember why, but for some reason I put my hand on the bottom of the dashboard and felt something wet. I looked at my finger noticed a strange white substance on it, and I wiped it off right away. I then saw that there was a small paper cut from the day before where the white substance was. Could this white substance have been semen, and could it have infected me with HIV? I had the rental car for at least 14 days before this incident, and I don't think that semen can go that long without drying, but I am still very worried. I don't remember the substance being very sticky as semen usually is, I think it may have been sunblock, I'm not sure though. Please help!

You're worried that the wet goop you felt under the dashboard of a rental car you had been driving for 14 days was spunk??? And you're worried it might transmit HIV to you via a day-old small paper cut??? Dearie, just how do you think the jizz would have wound up there? Perhaps a few HIV-infected hotties were screwing under your hood? Your fears are totally unwarranted. HIV doesn't survive very long outside the body. And you'd have to be a Cirque du Soleil contortionist to screw under the dashboard.
