Hello. Very afraid. Please help. Had an erotic massage at a prostitutes house. That's all that happened (no sex) and now I'm worried that I may have been exposed to the previous clients fluids. The towel she gave me to clean up with was wet (yuck) and I know this is completely unsanitary. Am I at risk. I learned my lesson and will never do this again. Please advise. No judgements please. I feel bad already. Thanks for understanding!

Often these towels are wet from water to help clients clean up afterwards.


At any rate, HIV is a very delicate virus outside of the body. It dies very quickly outside the warmth and protection of the human body. There is no risk of transmission of this virus from a towel.
