Sharing Whisky
      #269905 - 12/29/12 02:13 PM

soo here's my story, my girlfriends neighbour and I were having drinks straight out of his whisky bottle. After I noticed he had what looked like a sore on his mouth I wasnt sure if it was bleeding or not. But then I noticed I think I had a little cut on my mouth after all it is winter.... So I was just worried that he could have bled and it could have gotten into my cut. I would love to know how much of a risk I have...he ill informed me that he had 117 sexual partner...I didn't believe him but still you never know?

HIV is not transmitted by sharing drinks or food.

It is very low risk for sharing foods and drinks.
Please be relax.

STD -

HIV is transmitted via unprotected sex and hollow bore needles. It is NOT transmitted via casual contact. Sharing food, drinks and utensils is considered casual contact. Even courts understand this which is why a parent's HIV status is immaterial in a custody case.

By hedging and saying this is a very low risk situation instead of what it is, a NO risk situation you perpetuate misinformation and add to the stigma of those living with HIV.

Seriously ! Know I know you've been here before with others " questionable" situations. But come on , haven't you learned anything? I don't mean to sound abrupt or anything like that but it's like people thinking they can get it from a "wet " toilet cause they don't know what it's wet with.

Incorrect. Sharing drinks or foods IS NOT A RISK for HIV. Actually, is not a risk for almost anything!

If you want to give an example about 'low risk' for HIV you may quote oral sex.

Sharing food is NO RISK AT ALL, just as shaking someone's hand. Period.
