17 HIV cases detected in Greek Brothels


Greek police recently conducted a crackdown on brothels in Greece in response to a sharp rise in HIV cases last year.

Of the 130 women tested so far, 17 were found to be HIV positive.

Hundreds more women are expected to be screened over the next few weeks.

This is another reminder of the dangers of commercial and casual sex.

Abstinence and being in a mutually monogamous relationship where both partners are HIV free are the only 2 sure ways of protecting yourself from HIV. In all other situations please use a condom. It does not eliminate the risk but at least reduces it significantly.

  1. Hi

    I went to a gay sauna one night (saturday night)

    It was pretty dark and this guy put his fingers on my gums a couple of times,then i think he masturbated on my ass but didn’t cume inside! He fingered me after! On tuesday night (3 days later) i wasn’t feeling that well! The day after my stomach was upset and i started having sweats on my forehead! Also i sweated alot at night i think for at least 5 days! fever was mild thliver enzyme levele higher it went was 37.5 but not that often! After that my throat was soar and also i felt pain on my neck! Rash on my chest and swollen armpit for a day! 35 days later my stomach is still not 100% and my throat either it comes and goes!! How high was the risk of getting HiV? I’m not really coughing but i was feeling very tired after couple of the days and I couldn’t sleep good for at least 1-2 weeks! Is it because I’m overthinking and stressed? Thanks

    • From your description, I would say the risk for HIV transmission is close to zero. Please see a doctor if you have concerns.

  2. Extremely unlucky

    I personally do not believe too much the statistics rate of HIV female-male transmission, especially in the case of the prostitutes it seems to be rather something like 50% for unprotected vaginal sex not those low numbers.
    For example there was a case of an HIV+ prostitute and 12 of her previous got testet and 11 of them turned positive.
