    Ease of transmission

    I went to a strip club last April. Several hours before (maybe five or six) I impulsively squeezed a few pores on my face. Puss or oil or whatever came out, and that widened the pore openings. I don't believe there had been any blood, but my pores were widened. At the club, a stripper rubbed her breasts across my face across the same area where those widened pores were. Her breasts seemed sweaty, but what if she had something else on them? Is there any risk of infection? Could the HIV virus have found it's way into my enlarged pores?

    What about a scab on my face?
