Sex Toy Question
« on: January 30, 2008, 02:04:13 PM »
I have a stupid question. Is it possible for someone to become infected with HIV by screwing a blow up doll or toy vagina?

Thanks in advance for your response.

Worried,

Hiv stands for HUMAN immunodeficiency virus. Blow-up dolls are not human, no matter how realistic you may think they are.

Please read our Transmission Lesson so you can understand what is and what is not a risk for hiv. You'll find a link to the lesson in our Welcome Thread. Get reading!

HIV is a fragile virus and not easily transmitted. A sex doll or other such contrivance doesn't provide the kind of setting for transmission, no, not even if it's dripping with body fluids from a previous user.

It's a no risk setting for HIV transmission. Period.

Long as you not sharing your toys and washing them after sex you should be safe always was them due to germs and other bacterias not only for HIV

also make sure you a non allergenic soap Dial Soap Might be to strong even though they are antibacterial soap
Before and after sex even Stainless steels piercing and dildos

Long as there is no Blood, Body fluid or Party Drugs involved. do what you want with the Doll, Dildos, Vibrator (Wipe down with a soapy cloth do not wash Vibrator; unless its waterproof)

Make sure you put these suckers away do not want guest think you have fetish or kinks LOL
