Why can't I just be French?

Mar 28, 2010

Bonjour Dr. Bob,

I hear so much HIV controversy about deep, open mouth gay kissing. Is it risky? I only ask because I open-mouth french kissed a guy (I am French, you know) for about 10 minutes but I had a cut in my gum from dental flossing about 5 hours earlier in the day. Would this be a risk? And one which I need to get tested?



Response from Dr. Frascino

Salut Gerard,

Tu es français, donc sois français! Il y a une chanson américaine célèbre qui dit: "You must remember this, a kiss is just a kiss . . . as time goes by." Je suis d'accord! Je te conseille de rappeler ces paroles.

À l'aise Blaise! Tout va bien. Ce n'est pas nécessaire de te faire faire un test.

Bisettes et Crêpes Suzette.

Dr. Bob
