Panty Mouth HIV

Question: 

Visited strip club. One of the dancer put her panty inside my mouth ( The time taken for her panty being off and in my mouth will be approx 40-50 seconds)..I took in the mouth for approx 10 seconds. What are the chances of HIV

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV after having a panty in your mouth. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No risk (Transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the Transmission Equation. It does not satisfy the equation because the activity described would not result in exchange of bodily fluids or direct access to enter the bloodstream. If there happened to be bodily fluids on the panties, the virus would most likely be inactive as it would have been exposed to oxygen. In addition, it is very difficult to acquire HIV by mouth.

HIV positive fluid that is exposed to oxygen undergoes a rapid reduction in HIV concentration, making it extremely difficult to transmit from person to person (1). The event you described above would involve a significant amount of time for HIV to be exposed to environmental surfaces (such as the panty you described). For this reason alone, there is absolutely No Risk for HIV transmission.

Recommendation: There is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. Refer to a healthcare professional for more personalized answers.
