There is absolutely no possibility of HIV transmission in the situation you have described. HIV is not transmitted from either being masturbated, massaged or from environmental surfaces. Even if your penis was dipping into a puddle of someone  other guy's semen.

You are worrying needlessly.

Thanks Andy.. You are doing a great job..May god bless you..

I was just curious as I had read that HIV is transmitted by infected semen/blood if it enters the opening of your penis (which was in my case)..

I am just worried about that? I would be grateful if you could pls reply to my query.. I am still very nervous and in depression..Appreciate your early response..

Thanks..

It is through unprotected intercourse when the penis is in a vagina or an anus that the HIV virus has an opportunity in a receptive setting for the virus to be transmitted. Absolutely not in the circumstances you have described.

You are worrying needlessly.

Blood touch on Anus - HIV Risk? Pls help..
« Reply #8 on: May 22, 2009, 07:45:06 PM »
Hi,

I had visited a massage parlour recently.. I was lying naked with my face down.. The lady massaged me using a massage oil and touched my anus at regular intervals..

I am just scared that if she had cuts on her fingers and if she was bleeding (HIV+) and the blood would have gone into my anus (i.e mucous membrance).. It is important to point out that I also have cuts on my anus due to excessive wiping.. Am I at risk of getting HIV+?

Please frankly advise me and let me know if I am required testing? Plss help as I am getting sleepless nights..

I've merged your threads. Please follow our rule and keep all of your comments in this same thread.

Once again you are worrying needlessly. Your masseur could have had fresh semen dripping from her fingers and that still wouldn't have been a risk to you. Of course she didn't have semen-covered hands, right? HIV is a fragile virus. It needs the kind of receptive setting which unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse provide.

So even if you had cuts around your anus and whatever other details your anxious mind comes up with, you did not have a risk. Period. End of story.

Thanks Andy, you are always a great help..May God Bless you.

I am sorry if I did not make my self clear in my previous thread. The only worry that is killing me is that what if the lady who gave me the massage had cuts on her fingers and HER own infected blood would have  gone into my anus (mucous membrane).  My anus (mucous membrane) would have come into contact with her infected blood as i said i have cuts on my anus due to excessive wiping..what are my chances then? please advise me frankly as this thought is killing me..

thanks once again for your patience..hope i have made myself clear now..may god bless you..

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, 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.

It doesn't matter what details you throw into a massage situation and the "cuts" or skin breaks or whatever they were around your anus. It still all comes down to no risk, no risk, no risk.

And I have to tell you if you continue to come back with more of the same you will shortly be heading to a time out from the site.

You have no cause to be concerned.

From where I am looking this is really all about some shame or guilt or something you have about the incident itself and NOTHING to do with a real risk for HIV.

Get on with your life.

Ling,

We understood your blood concern the first time you posted about it. NO RISK!

I'm giving you that time out you've been warned about. Do not attempt to create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned.
