Question about Handjob
« on: March 24, 2008, 02:55:38 PM »
Hello Aidsmeds.com Team
i have a question and i hope you can give me an answer. a few weeks ago i had an encouter with an prostitute at a hooker place. we had sex with condoms. at the end she played with her vagina with her bare hands and started to give me an handjob. unfortunately i had no condom on. she also used some kind of bodyoil and rubbed it on my penis. i mean she had vaginal fluid on her hands but i dont know if this was a risk to me........? what do you mean? maybe i had microscopical injuries on my penis............oh gooooosh what shall i do? i read on many forums that giving someone a handjob is not a risk but i dont know if it is a risk if the prostitute had vaginal fluid on her hands. i hope you guys can tell me a bit more about this......

regards

Masturbation is never a risk of transmitting HIV, not even with vaginal fluids on her hands or your microscopic injuries to your penis.

You have absolutely no basis in HIV science to be concerned about this incident. I can't help wondering if you would be so concerned if you had been with a civilian instead of a pro.

Read our lesson on Transmission. There's a link to it in the Welcome thread which opens this section. You get all of the basics there.

No need for testing and no need for further concern.

one qstn i got for u guys. it is about the use of condoms. sometimes when u use a condom and ur errection becomes lower it slipps downwards and the upper part of your penis has no more protection. with upper part i mean the beginning of the penis muscle. can u get an infection from that point? even when she is hiv +?

No, the only thing you need to be concern with is that the head of your penis is covered.

thanks for the information. i was drunk that day and having sex and being drunk is a bad combination because u forget the guideline of safer sex like i did - a masturbation without condom from a prostitute. omg i will never do that again.
i hope i hadnt some injuries on my penis but i heard that gel or oil destroys the virus........? right?

bad,

It doesn't matter if you wore a condom for a handjob or not - getting a handjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Never has been, never will be, no matter if lube is used or not.

You did NOT have a risk!

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex with a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through all three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST OVER A HANDJOB, Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

what about the urethra? is that a dangeR when a person gives another one a handjob without condoms and having vaginal fluid on her hands? is a transfer of the virus possible?

As has been explained to you already getting a handjob is not a risk for HIV transmission.

A handjob dripping in vaginal fluids does not create the kind of receptive setting required for transmission. No, no matter how much your head says otherwise. Really.

so even when u got vaginal fluids on your hands and giving a man a handjob and touching his glands during the handjob it would be no risk?
but as you said andy it is actually impossible to be worried about a handjob more than having an unprotected penis inside a vagina or having anal sex........

You understood Andy correctly. No risk, not even if she had vaginal fluids on her hands while giving you a hand job.

bad,

No, that's not a risk either. Saliva contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

Did you ever bother to read the Transmission Lesson like you've been asked to? It sure doesn't seem like you have.

And while you're in the Welcome Thread to click on the Transmission Lesson, make sure you read the posting guidelines, including this one:

Quote
Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situations, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Please consider yourself warned.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!
