Tripped over inside gay sauna room and got wounded
      #270399 - 01/29/13 06:13 PM

Hello, a little paranoid here.

I went to a gay sauna and while entering the steam room I tripped over and my knee was wounded. I would describe the wound as something what kids typically get when running too fast and careless. The wound was not deep (let alone gushing with blood) but when I dabbed it with tissue paper, it left a light pink blood stain. Is this considered an open wound?

Now here's the paranoid part: I recall the surface of the floor somewhat cemented (just like those in sidewalks/roads) and wet. The room was dark so was not able to see it clearly. I am just wondering about the possibility of getting HIV in my case considering the state of cleanliness (of lack thereof) of the floor of these gay saunas. Should there be sufficient reason for me to worry (because right now I am) that I'll get the disease/virus from the fluids that were on the floor? How long can the virus thrive, if they can at all, in such environment assuming the floor was dirty? There was only one guy sitting inside the room when it happened and I don't think he was masturbating. He was just sitting there.
