A Fatal Kiss?
      #25091 - 11/30/01 01:40 PM

Last week I visited a strip club and spent some time talking with a dancer at the bar. At the conclusion of our time, she kissed me on the lip .... actually lightly bit my bottom lip. No skin broken. But she left some saliva on my lip and I quickly wiped it off. Do not know if there was blood present. Somebody please tell me.... what I be at risk for HIV? I am married and really scared of taking this home. Please answer.

The kiss is only fatal if your wife finds out about it and has a problem with it. Other than that you don't have anything to worry about.

As they say:

"Hell hath no furry like the wrath of a women scorned"

I'd be way more concerned about the wife then having contracted anything from this kiss.

Below is from
Can I get HIV from Kissing?

There are four fluids that can carry and transmit HIV: blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and breast milk. Saliva doesn't transmit it.

It is, however, THEORETICALLY possible to contract HIV through kissing. If both partners have cuts or sores in the mouth or bleeding gums (like after brushing or flossing your teeth), infected blood could possibly be exchanged. However, in practice this is EXTREMELY unlikely. There is something about saliva and the environment of the mouth that is inhospitable to the virus. Like all safe sex, kissing is a matter of managing risks. If you are aware of cuts or sores in your mouth, it is best to abstain from "deep kissing," but in general kissing is one of the safest sexual activities.

i've just posted in the women's section the same question. i am a woman who has only deep kissed, no sex. i've called the cdc and gmhc. cdc told me i should get tested, as there is a risk...i couldn't believe it. the gmhc said not a risk, unless there is a significant amount of blood. i wonder what significant is? i know this seems so stupid, i never thought of kissing as a risk. i wish i'd never made the stupid phone call to the cdc...don't you call them! your wife may understand about the kiss. if my husband went to a strip bar and came home with having kissed a stripper, i'd get over it. i told my husband about my extrmarital kiss..he was cool about it, but i still fear that i put myself at risk, so in my's not the guilt.
