Jimmy,

You should NOT be PMing people to beg for answers in your thread. If there was anything wrong with the answers you've had, you would have known about it by now.

You didn't have a risk, as you have been told. You got a blowjob. Get over it. OK?

It makes no difference. Getting a blowjob, no matter what sort of spin you want to put on it, is NOT a risk for hiv infection.

A time out can only be imposed by a Moderator. You'd have to ask Ann or Andy about that.

Why don't you exercise a little bit of self control? Turn your computer off, get up from the desk and walk away. It's not hard. Also make an appointment to talk with a mental health professional to discuss your "irrational thoughts" and unfounded fears of HIV infection.

Keep using those condoms. You should be wearing one everytime you have intercourse. They provide very effective protection.

Her having a piercing wouldn't have presented any particular risk unless she was bleeding from it.

In any case, by consistently wearing a condom for intercourse you're keeping yourself covered literally and figuratively so there wouldn't be any cause for concern.

Two,

No, you don't need to test over this specific incident. However, 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.

Check out the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence. Use them correctly and consistently and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Two,

Condoms have been proven to be very effective when it comes to hiv prevention - and this includes when blood is present.

There have been long-term studies of couples where one is positive and one is negative. In the couples who used condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, but no barrier for oral activities, not one of the negative partners became infected with hiv. Not one. This shows us two things. One, condoms are very effective for the prevention of hiv transmission. Two, oral sex is much lower risk than previously believed. We now have the evidence that oral sex is a very low risk activity where hiv transmission is concerned.

Keep using those condoms.

You keep adding little bits of what ifs. Like giving oral vaginally & anally.

Please read this carefully: YOU WERE NOT AT RISK DURING THIS INCIDENT. There's no need for testing. 

Now what? What's preventing you from letting go and moving on is really the question.
