Scottish girl back, with new worry, your advice keeps me sane!

Hi, thanks for reading this. Your work is great and so i will donate again as i really need this question answered.
Went to toilet in college last night and wiped toilet seat. It wasnt until after i had done toilet i noticed blood stains on the outer bowl and some on the actual seat, where my legs rest against. Now im terrified i have caught something from this blood. Now, when i went into the toilet i touched the handle and then when i wiped, my finger sort of slipped and touched part of my vagina. I also have small paper cuts on my hands and fingers. What are the chances? Thanks so much. Oh and under our kilts we wear....nothing!

Your HIV-acquisition risk from the college toilet incident you describe is nonexistent. HIV doesn't live very long at all outside the body. I see absolutely no cause for concern or HIV testing.
As for wearing nothing under Scottish kilts, I was hoping you'd say that. I also expected as much from spending an evening with a Scotsman in a kilt recently. While we were dancing, I noticed a striking "tilt in his kilt!"
