please explain me why no risk.
Millions of teenagers kiss every day and no one in 40 year HIV history got it from kissing. Likely no one in the next 40 years of your life will get it either.
Only sex risks are penetrating unprotected anal or vaginal.
but in my case it was a pimple kiss where its redness is coming from blood. am I wrong?
Reread the part about the 40.
