will whipping my partner's asshole with alcohol pads make rimming any safe

Apr 23, 2011

I'm really into rimming but I too scared to try.

Response from Dr. Frascino


"Whipping my partner's asshole with alcohol pads . . . ." What? You want to whip your partner's butt with alcohol pads? Hmm. Sounds kinky.

Rimming is not considered a risk for HIV; however, you can contract other diseases (hepatitis A, intestinal parasites, herpes, etc.). Use a barrier, such as plastic wrap or a dental dam, to prevent fecal matter from getting into your mouth. This will also protect you from intestinal parasites, hepatitis A and herpes.

exercise, drink alcohol and smoke.
