HIV risk from making out with blood?
I am a little concerned here. A couple nights ago I met this guy who was really hot. We were making out for a long time to the point that his stubble rubbed the skin right under my lip raw, and I tasted blood while we were making out. I didn't think much of it because making out is not generally a risk for HIV, but then today I was thinking, what if my stubble made his lip bleed also and then there could have been transmission if that was the case and his blood got into the raw spot below my lip. We didn't do anything else sexually just that, but I am really concerned now. What would you say my risk is if his lip was bleeding too.. I forgot to look and now I am freaking out and I won't see him for a while.

Re: HIV risk from making out with blood?
you are over thinking this. Kissing is not a risk for HIV. It would take tremendous amounts of blood and open sores or wounds to be a risk.
