AIDS transmission through indirect sexual contact

Aug 3, 2012

Hi doctor,

This is embarrassing, but i am a male was a dared to put on a pair of women's panties. I found out later that the pair of panties was worn by a woman with AIDS who had sex 8 hours ago and used them afterwards. I was made to put on those panties directly on my body for a minute or so. Is it possible for transmission to occur via this route?
