After coming here for over 5 years you ought to know by now that the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. A fleshlight is neither a vagina nor an anus.

Keep it simple. Use condoms everytime for intercourse and you will be well protected.

Burned tongue hot food no bleeding and oral sex
« Reply #51 on: June 07, 2014, 05:01:25 AM »
Hello All,

I haven't been here in a couple of years and have been coming in once in a while to see your good work and read more and get educated more on the subject as treatment and society advance on this virus. And thank you for all you do.

I do have a question and of may be silly, but we never think of things sometimes till after they happen.  But...

Two nights ago I hooked up with a man of unknown status after having dinner, and I had slightly burned my tongue from the hot food at dinner. I didn't bleed, I have good oral hygiene and I had rinsed with a mouthwash after eating.

But about an hour later I found myself making out with this guy, his tongue in my mouth and mine in his, and he gave me oral sex and rimmed me. Sorry for the graphics, but at this point I have learnt that I should be safe. But I got caught up in the moment and I gave him some oral sex for about a minute, then remembered my tongue issue, so I stopped.

My question is simple: was I at great risk from catching HIV from this and should I go to my emergency clinic for PEP since it's been 36 hours now since.  Let's assume he was poz, and like I said, I didn't know.

Maybe I'm just your one and only....OCG

No, I don't consider this to be a PEP indicated situation. Your saliva contains over a dozen elements and proteins which very effectively prevent the transmission of viable HIV. And whatever the details kissing is not a risk for HIV transmission.

Let it go and get on with your life.

I've merged your threads here because it's a rule of the site for members to use only one thread. This is the only place you should be writing.

There's no need for testing nor for further concern about this incident.

Thank you Andy,

It's just that I have a small blister on my tongue now and so the burn was kinda bad I guess.

As for the thread, I tried to add to my last one but the instructions say that if it's a new topic we should start one. I wasn't clear on that.

Oops.
