Oral Sex with TS Escort
« on: July 31, 2008, 02:19:06 PM »
I would be grateful for any advice on my possible exposure and whether or not I need to worry or get tested.

Five days ago I had an encounter with a Pre Op Ts Escort. It was after some alcohol so I was intoxicated but not totally inebriated. Basically the activities engaged in were mutual masturbation (just me to ejaculation), oral sex (which I think was covered both ways) and an aborted attempt at covered insertive anal sex (me as the penetrator....no penetration occurred as I wasn't able to maintain an erection).

The escort didn't cum. My worries are around the oral, which as I said as far as I am aware was covered both ways. If it wasn't is there a need to worry/test?!?! There seems to be some conflicting opinions on the net (which I know is ripe for finding whatever you want)I assume the failed penetrative act is a no risk?!?!

I had a similar experience earlier in the month this time with definite uncovered BJ performed by me on a pre op TS and the doctor I spoke with said there was no risk of HIV transmission unless there was a large cut but prescribed Zithromax for other STDs which he said were much more likely. He told me not to worry about HIV in this type of situation.

So on the basis of the above info do people think I need to worry/test for HIV?!?!

Other posts on the website are reassuring as are the forums on Medhelp as well as the studies in Spain, Dr. K's advice and my previous advice from my Doctor etc.

I realise this is an oft referred to topic but I would like your opinion on this.

I thank you for your patience

Tip,

I totally agree with your doctor. NO risk for hiv.

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 THIS SPECIFIC ENCOUNTER, 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.

Thank you for your advice.

Ordinarily I am in a monogamous exclusive relationship but I've obviously not been keeping to that these past weeks. I won't be straying again. I guess there is no harm in testing every so often anyway.

So to summarise I need not worry about this incident and should move on but get tested for all STDs etc ?!?! Even if I'd been exposed to Cum/Pre-cum?!?!

Thanks again Ann

Tip,

Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv transmission. Protected intercourse is not a risk and does not need to be tested over.

Getting a blowjob is not a risk, protected or not. Giving a blowjob is considered a theoretical risk, but so is getting hit by a metorite when you step outside your house.

You do not need to test over your experiences.
