Doctor, 

Kissed with a stripper for a while. I am a married man with a son and i am regretting this stupid stupid mostake. No sexual contact of any sort just kissing. Am i at risk of any STD or HIV?

Thank you so very much.

Welcome back to the forum. However, I'm sorry you found it necessary.

HIV is not transmitted by kissing. Neither are any other STDs. Dry lips make no difference.

This is your 6th forum question, mostly (although not entirely) about obviously low risk events with no chance of HIV or other STDs. Let'e make this the last such question. Here's all you need to know:  if there is no condomless genital penetration into another person's vagina or rectum (or mouth, but only very rarely), there is no STD/HIV risk.
