Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there Breathe easy frottage/heavy petting/grinding while you have your clothes on carries a negligible to nonexistent risk for HIV. If you're still concerned, go to your local testing clinic or health department three months after the incident to get an HIV test, but your result will undoubtedly be negative. On another note, engaging in frottage with someone without his/her consent or knowledge is risky and unwise. If HIV is a concern of yours, then be sure you know who your partner is and their HIV status. Take care, LHW
