Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr
Doctor :   How may I help you ?
User :   hello, doc I went to a party tonight. I was at the dance floor dancing with everyone and then this girl came to me and started dancing with me. she was dancing with her back facing me. She was grinding me. grinding is a type of close partner dance where two dancers rub their bodies against each other while wearing clothes on. I was wearing a tshirt and jeans and she was wearing a tshirt and jeans too and she was rubbing her hips agianst my jeans near my penis area while dancing. we danced for 5 or 10 minutes and i left. and my penis was not even erected for the whole time we danced . so my question is that by dancing in this way can i catch aids? i am really worried and cant sleep now. can u please help me
User :   ?
Doctor :   Hi , As you have mentioned that you did not even have a proper erection , there is a very remote chance of Ejaculation and then your fluid coming into contact with the body fluids of the girl. So I would say that your chance of getting HIV + is almost zero.
User :   and we were both wearing clothes fully and my skin didnt even touch her skin. we were just dancing and everyone was there
Doctor :   And hence there is no need to even give a thought to what had happened. HIV doesnt spread by touch , shake hand or just body contact.
Doctor :   So there is no need to fear, just put it aside
Doctor :   You are absolutely fine.
User :   okay so just being clear i cannot get aids by the way i danced tonight right?
Doctor :   No.
Doctor :   You would not.
User :   okay thanks a lot doctor
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me, Take care, Bye for now.
