Possible infection

Aug 22, 2013

Hello, Can deep kissing and rubbing up against each other naked a risk for HIV? I did not have intercourse with a guy I met but we did kiss, very deeply all night, and rubbed up against each other naked. It's been two weeks since my encounter with him and I've been feeling anxious about HIV. Do I have anything to worry about? I get mixed information online, and that worries me to death. Should I worry? I did not have any sores and I believe he did not have any either. Please help me, in order to calm my anxiety. Thank you!

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, No risk!!! Kissing and body contact are not ways for HIV transmission to occur. So kiss away and rub away on those bodies........but if you do get to the point of having intercourse make sure you put that condom on!!!!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Help weird risk
