Hiv from new sex toy
Jan 17, 2013

I bought a prostate vibrating toy from a sex shop. The cashier put batteries in it to make sure it worked. I used it about an hour later but forgot to wash it. If the person that took it out of the package had hiv would it have been possible to catch in this scenario. I have been stressing a lot about this even though I feel I am most likely fine

Response from Mr. Chambers

Extremely rare, however, I am not qualified to answer transmission questions knowledgeably.

Health not really good
Blue cross, atripla?
