Hi Dr.

Maybe she has HIV Can i transmitted HIV through dance? or if she scratch me during dance? And what about kiss? not on mouth or french kiss

Thanks the answer


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Gabor,

HIV through dancing? No, unless of course you're doing the unsafe, unprotected horizontal mattress mambo with a positively charged partner.

HIV via scratching during a dance? Nope! By the way, what type of dance are you doing that involves scratching? Are you dancing with Edgar Scissorhands or perhaps Wolverine? (Hmm . . . actually dancing with Wolverine would be hot and perhaps worth a few nicks and scratches.)

HIV via kissing ("not on mouth and not French")? Nope! As the song goes: "A kiss is just a kiss . . . as time goes by . . . ."
