Indian Dreams

Apr 25, 2011

Dear Dr Bob,

I am a great fan of your work and I find a great deal of peace in reading some of your archives. I would be grateful if you could answer the following:

1. Armpit Licking - After a heavy drinking / smoking session (which made my tongue feel a bit sore / hurt), I licked a CSW's armpit.

2. Ear Licking - I licked her ear lobe (as far as I can remember the area below the piercing, though my paranoia is that why if I actually liked the pierced hole whilst licking the ear)

Please advise me if these carry HIV transmission risks. I have another 6 weeks to go and am contemplating quitting my job as I am so stressed and not able to function.

I shall also make a donation to your foundation.

Best Wishes, A distressed soul

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Distressed Soul,

1. HIV-acquisition risk: nonexistent.

2. HIV-acquisition risk: nonexistent.

Your fears are completely unwarranted. Neither worry nor HIV testing is warranted.

By the way, if all you did was lick the hooker's armpit and ear, you hardly got your money's worth! Did you get a refund?

Dr. Bob

Is it 3 months or 4 months for HIV testing if you take PEP?
please help me!!!!!
