HIV Question

Is it possible to contract HIV from just kissing a man's upper body away from the mouth? Even if the kissing involves touching the mouth to the man's armpits? When I did this, I had chapped lips, including the corner of my lips, so I might have been bleeding a little. Is there any risk?

This is not risky behavior in terms of HIV transmssion. Even if your partner was HIV positive you would not come in contact with their sexual fluids or their blood by kissing their armpits.
