Searched Archives and Wouldn't bother you if I wasn't petrified!!!

Sep 3, 2009

Thank you for taking time to read my question. I know it may seem silly or insignificant...I just wish I could make my mind believe that and stop worrying! So, I'll make it quick - A naked guy rubbing his penis against a woman's bathing-suit covered genitals in a hot tub. Is there any chance for transmission from the man to woman if the man is infected? Could precum or semen get pressed through the swimsuit or "washed" into the vagina. How worried should this woman be about testing? Or is she just losing her mind? Please, just a one sentence answer will suffice!!! Wouldn't bother you if I wasn't petrified....

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Petrified,

". . . A one sentence answer will suffice." Actually a two-word answer is all that's required: nonexistent risk!

Dr. Bob

Scared!! Like hunting with Dick Cheney scared!
