Hiv infection, being a virgin. Having outercourse, no penetration ( frottage) at risk of hiv specifically ?
No risk: HIV is virtually 100% prevented by correct and consistent condom use for vaginal or anal sex. Contrary to popular beliefs, hepatitis C isn't sexually transmitted at all, except in gay men through traumatic (potentially bloody) rectal sexual practices. Heterosexual partners of persons with HCV are at no increased risk at all. Thus, little or no risk even without condoms, zero risk with them. ...Read more
Generally, no...: Physiologically, it's not safe. But fantasy has mesmerized some people engaging in anal coitus. As to using saliva as lube, it is the fact that saliva still contains some bacteria besides the existing bacteria inside the rectum and anal canal. Theoretically, it's safe. I would not advise to practice anal sex although personal fantasy may overtake the reasoning. Best luck... ...Read more

Can STD's like: AIDs,HPV,Gonorrhea,syphlis transmit through external genital contact and no penetration -no sexual intercourse?
Rarely for some STDs: Thanks for your question. Very low risk for all STDs and zero risk for some. No risk -- at least low enough to be ignored -- for STDs passed by genital fluids (gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, hepatitis B). STDs that are transmitted skin-to-skin (herpes, HPV, syphilis) could be transmitted, but very rarely even for these. I hope this helps. Stay safe! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can we infected with HIV virus on sex intercourse with multiple partners who are non-hiv infected even using condoms/taking other preventive measures.
No: If you are HIV negative and all your partners are also HIV negative, then you cannot get HIV infected through sex. This is especially the case if using barrier protection like condoms. However, how do you know for sure that even one of your multiple partners is not HIV infected. He/she could have been recently infected and hasn't had an HIV test since that time. Its a dangerous practice. ...Read more
