Exposure thru latex gloves

Dec 10, 2010

I made another man cum while wearing a latex glove. There was no other contact or touching with him. The glove was intact the whole time and I did use a water based lubricant. While there was cum and lubricant on the outside of the glove, there was no fluid or moisture that penetrated the glove when I removed it. Is there any risk of HIV transmission? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Frascino


No, of course not! By the way, even if you didn't have the gloves on, your HIV-acquisition risk would still be nonexistent! HIV cannot permeate intact skin.

Thrush doesn't mean you have HIV!
