Can semen be vaporized and can you get HIV this way ?
      #272213 - 05/27/13 02:24 PM

Was in a gay sauna - walked into a dry sauna room and masturbated with a couple of guys, without doing anything oral/anal and everybody just ejaculated into towel. However, immediately afterwards, I seemed to get the taste of semen in my mouth/tongue. Can sauna heat vaporize semen and can HIV be transmitted this way ? I immediately ran out to try to rinse my mouth....

Anything can be "vaporized" as in turned into gas unless its already a gas. But if its turned into a gas from a solid or liquid it means its chemical bonds have been loosened to the point of no longer being able to hold its solid or liquid state. (It looses or gains energy to turn from one state to another depending on its make up).

Now knowing that do you think that a living thing such as a virus can be vaporized and reform itself back into a solid state and still be the same virus? Hint: if you answer with anything either than, "no that's ridiculous," then may I suggest asking your local highschool if you can retake biology and chemistry classes again.

And before you say viruses can be turned into aresols they aren't heated to do it. They are just placed in a medium that allows them to travel that way.
