Multiple oral exposures?
« on: October 30, 2007, 04:57:19 PM »
I know oral is low risk....I am a male that loves getting head. Over the last 3 years I have had probably over 200 different partners for oral, 85 per cent of the time i was the reciever. The other 15 per cent I was the one giving, I never let anyone ejaculate in my mouth. But I have dumped many loads when I was the reciever. Are my risk still low even after having over 200 dicks. Never have done any anal. Only oral. I often get nervous when I stop to realize how much dick I have had. Do you think their are any other guys that have had more that me and dont worry about it as much as I do?

The bottom line in all of this is there has never been a single confirmed case of transmission to a guy while receiving a blowjob. Not one! So we consider that to be a non-risk activity. Period.

As far as giving oral there is much more evidence that says it is not a risk. A longterm study of sero-discordant couples, both gay and straight, who had lots of mutual oral and only protected intercourse has thus far resulted in not a single sero-negative partner becoming infected.

Reports of infection from giving oral have repeatedly turned out to be questionable in terms of factual reliability -- faulty memory and other factors involved. Giving oral seems particularly unlikely to occur if ejaculation doesn't happen orally. Your saliva contains elements which are effective natural HIV inhibitors.

So as far as giving oral this is in the domain of what level of risk do you consider acceptable. Some will give oral and not allow ejaculation orally. Others will even insist on using a condom. Like I said, this is where you have to decide what you are comfortable with.

In general we do recommend that anyone who is sexually active ought to have a full STD panel done at least annually.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

i realize what you are saying, but...cmon,thats alot of dick though. The risk has to be higher. Just want some input as to weather or not other guys have had aas much dick...and if they worry about it as much as i do. Dont say I can test to put my mind at ease. I wont test becuase, im more afraid to know, if it was positive. I can stop. I need my fix alot....love Gloryholes.Love having a big dick come through a glory hole for my service.And love even more to stick my dick through one.

You really need to be more concerned about other STDs such as gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia. All much more easy to transmit than HIV.

What do you want us to say ...that there was risk when we know there is no risk for HIV transmission in getting a blowjob. I don't care if you have the guys lining up down the block to go down on you. There is no risk.

Well ok, theoretically anytime you have sex with anything other than your hand there is risk. But we've had over 20 years of this epidemic and triilions of blowjobs later nobody has gotten infected through being sucked off. You aren't going to be the first.

As someone else suggested to you there is much more chance of other STDs so since you are obviously sexually active, you should regularly be having a full STD panel done.

You're awfully busy trying to control everything about this. On one hand you're saying shouldn't you be worried. We tell you what's for real about this and then you say if you are infected you don't want to know. Which I have to say is pretty dumb. Nothing you have reported leads me to expect you would get other than a negative result. But I can tell you that anyone who is infected is in a much better position to have a healthy life by knowing their HIV status and having the issues addressed appropriately.

Bottom line here is I don't see HIV as an issue for you but I do recommend that you get a full STD panel done at least annually and every six months would be even better.
