Used a Friends Toy (SEX TOYS, 2011)

Jul 27, 2011

I looked through the forum but I suppose I'm nervous and wanted to be sure. I was experimenting and decided to use a friends sex toys for anal sex. I used two different toys but put new condoms on both before using them. I know the toys hadn't been used for at least a day or so before I used them. I didn't even think to clean them first but after the fact thought I about the risk. They appeared to be clean though. Since I don't know for sure who has used the toys in the past, I was curious if I should worry about HIV transmission even though both toys had not been used recently and I used condoms. Any help is certainly appreciated.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your HIV-acquisition risk is nonexistent. You used new condoms on your buddy's butt toys. HIV fears from sex toys is a common concern. See links below for some examples.
