Brief Encounter - Hiv
      #111604 - 09/16/04 12:14 PM

I was at a corporate outing where some strippers were brought in.
Things got a little out of hand and a few of us licked some booze off the ladies' vaginal areas. The whole thing lasted about 5 secs. Didn't think about it at the time, but was telling a buddy later and he said I should probably test for hiv and other stds. Is it possible to get hic from such an encounter ? Tks

Hypothetically yes.

However from what I have researched, there has never been a documented case of HIV transmission via oral sex with no transfer of bodily fluids. Search Dr. Bobs answers in the archives to read it from him.

Chapter 3 , Page 35

Throughout the world, people can contract HIV infection in three possible ways:

1) Through sexual contact, either homosexual or heterosexual. Heterosexual contact is the leading means of HIV transmission worldwide, and the fastest growing mode of HIV transmission in the nation.

2) Through the contact with blood or other bodily fluids, blood products, or tissues of an infected person. this usually occurs by inculation of HIV through needle sharing among users of illicit drugs; much more rarely, by accidental needle stick or splashes of blood on mucous membranes; and extremely rarely, through sustained contact of infected blood with breaks in the skin.

3) Through transfer of the virus from an infected mother to her infect before or during birth, or shortly after birth through breast-feeding. This mother-to-infect transfer is also known as perinatal transmission. Perinatal transmission is in rapid decline in the US.

Transfer of a virus from mother to infant is known as vertical transmission, which refers to transfer of the virus from one generation to the next. This term, along with horizontal transmission is used often in the scientific literature. horizontal transmission refers to transfer of the virus from one person to another in the population. Sexual transmission and blood-to-blood transmission are both examples of horizontal transmission.

Free HIV particles have been isolated from blood, semen, vaginal fluid, and breast milk. Other body fluids in which HIV is found include cerebrospinal fluid, which bathces the brain and spinal cord; synoviral fluid, which batches the surfaces of joints; pleural fluid, which occupies the narrow space between the lungs and the chest wall; and amniotic fluid, which surrounds the fetus. Researchers have also isolated HIV from saliva, tears, feces, and urine, in which it is sometimes present in very small amounts. No cases of HIV transmission through these fluids have been fully documented.
