Thank you very much for your answers last time. You did bring up a pertinent point which I am addressing, firstly, by "accepting" your answers which have allayed my fears 90%, and second, confiding in my closest friend who has asked me to move on. I sincerely thank you.
However, This is going to be definitely my last question - you and dr w mentioned that none of the HIV/HepB/HepC/Syphilis could penetrate clothes, however would this would be applicable for any type of cloth material? When I pulled the t-shirt which was made of (plain white jersey material) in both directions, I could see the material stretching and there were small gaps through which I could see the other side.
Please answer this as I assure you, from the bottom of my heart, that there is no other situation / circumstance which would come into my imagination. Please help me.

I am go grateful that you have allayed my fears by your response as I was so guilty of visiting the damned club, particularly in light of my wife being pregnant.
Presumably you also meant hepatitis B/C is also no risk.
Thank you once again.
Response from Mr. Glenn
As I said before: Dr. W's response also applies to the other STDs that you mentioned.
That includes Hep B and C.
If you feel as though your fears are something that do not leave you even after hearing repeatedly from us that you have no risk, it's time to consider that your fear is less about getting accurate information and more about addressing the fear itself.
There are many people equipped to help you manage your anxiety face-to-face. Those include counselors, trusted friends, perhaps a clergyperson that you're close to?
Hope this helps,
I'm glad to hear that most of your fears have been allayed, but it seems as though you're at a point where professional assistance may be helpful. Sometimes it's hard to manage your anxiety by yourself. This can lead to asking more and more technical questions on the search for risk that is not there...
The material/cloth doesn't matter. What does matter is what will get you to the point where you can accept the lack of risk in this situation.
By all means continue to ask questions on our forum, but I would strongly encourage you to seek the assistance of a mental health professional to help you let go of this situation.
Hope this helps,
