DOC! (SORRY ABOUT MY GRAMMAR AND SPELLING, I'M NOT AMERICAN) I WENT TO A TABLE DANCE AND RECEIVED 4 LAP DANCINGS WITH 4 DIFFERENT GIRLS. I USED TO BITE MY FINGERS YOU KNOW? I BITE MY NAILS VERY SHORT AND GET RID OF SOME SKIN WITH MY TEETH. LIKE A NERVOUS PERSON. I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY I DON'T KNOW A LOT OF WORDS TO DESCRIBE IT. THAT NIGHT I NOTICED THAT MY FINGERS WERE NOT FRESHLY HARMED. WELL AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT I SIMPLY REALIZED WHEN I CHECKED THEM OUT. (BUT MY NAILS WERE VERY SHORT AND I SAW OTHER NOT FRESH WOUNDS IN MY FINGERS. ONLY THAT ONE DAY BEFORE IN THE MORNING I STABBED BY ACCIDENT A NEEDLE IN ONE OF MY FINGERS PRODUCING A WOUND OF ABOUT HALF CENTIMETER.) WELL WITH THESE GIRLS....I TOUCHED THEIR CLITORIS ABOVE THEIR PANTIES MOST OF THE TIME AND IN SOME MOMENTS I COULD MAKE ASIDE THE PANTIES AND TOUCHED THEIR CLITORIS DIRECTLY. I'M SURE THAT I NEVER INTRODUCED MY FINGERS IN THEIR VAGINA. NEVER! THESE ACTIONS WITH EACH GIRL WERE VERY SHORT. MY QUESTION: AM I IN A HIGH RISK OF GETTING HIV BECAUSE OF THIS (I TRIED TO BE AS SPECIFIC AS I COULD). THANKS.
| Response from Mr. Kull
In terms of physical contact with others, no cases of HIV have been reported to be transmitted outside of anal, vaginal and oral sex. No cases of transmission have occurred through receiving oral sex, fingering (finger-fucking), mutual masturbation, massage, lap dancing, handshakes, touching, rubbing, wrestling, and the like. HIV is not transmitted by casual contact. Look at Rick's Casual Contact list to get an idea of what constitutes casual contact. Also read through the Frequently Asked Questions.
Try to look at the facts when determining your risk for infection. Try to leave out irrelevant details. If you are engaging in contact other than oral, anal, and vaginal sex, it is irrelevant if the person was a prostitute. It's the behavior (infected fluids coming into contact with mucous membranes) that adds up to HIV risk.
Get to know Rick's and my responses. Sometimes it is helpful to think of what we would say in response to your story. It's more often low-risk than not.
Hope this helps.
