My friend has motor neurons disease and walks with sticks up

Customer Question

My friend has motor neurons disease and walks with sticks up to her elbows, her legs are progressively getting weaker. Could I have an intimate relationship with her, and if so, is there anything I have to be aware of in relation to an infectious pass on from her to me?

Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like but there would be no problem with your being intimate with her if she would like to do that. Motor neuron disease is not an infectious disorder so there'd be no risk of you're getting infected in any way or of somehow developing her disease
