Travelling from liberia to kenya, passed out in the plane and at the airport. Never fainted before. Ate and drank wine. What could be wrong?
Kissing a girl: who comes from an HIV-prevalent area does result in more risk, but kissing is a very low risk behavior so I wouldn't worry about that. My understanding is that docking is between two males: placing one's penis inside the foreskin of another. If ejaculation occurs there would be a slight risk, but only if there were open skin--sore/cut/ulceration. Testing not needed after these. But Stay Safe! ...Read more
I was with 2 girls from kenya.they did protrcted oral sex for me.I did kissing fingering and docking unprotected for them.no penetration.any hiv risk?
This is safe: You will not get HIV though there is a small risk of gonorrhea. But please think about this. These women are probably trafficked from abject poverty in East Africa and exploited cruelly in Riyadh. Wouldn't you feel better about yourself as a man if you sought and shared real love where there is true mutual affection? You deserve better yourself. ...Read more

I'm having an acne break-out, my doctor tells me to keep away from the sun. How relevant is the sun in this case considering I was born and raised in kenya and only living in europe for a couple of years now?
? Misunderstanding: Disorders with sun-sensitivity can develop at any age, especially from new immune disease, newly-symptomatic porphyria, or medications, and unrelated to where you grew up. Sunlight has little effect on real, common acne -- perhaps there is a misunderstanding. Acne is best managed by prescription meds; i start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative in the mix. ...Read more
