found similar but not the same
« on: April 29, 2009, 02:56:00 PM »
I've found some postings that are similar, but not quite the same as my experience.  From what I have read, my encounter (as follows) would not warrant an hiv test.  Like most everyone else, I'm hoping for your expert opinion...
Encounter:  Two nights ago I had a meeting with a pre-op transexual (M2F).  Covered oral was performed on me first.  I then performed covered oral on the escort.  Along the way we switched to mutual master bation and I performed covered anal for a short time.  Then I went back down and performed more oral, only this time it was uncovered (I had mentioned that I wanted to see her ejaculate, thats why it probably got un-covered).  The escort then ejaculated in my mouth.  Now realizing the cover was gone, I spit out everything.
Needless to say, panic set in.  The escort assured me they were clean (would they really say they weren't if they had something?).  So...I go see my Dr. the next day and he ordered tests for other STD's but didn't seem to worried about hiv.  From what I've read here, it sounds like I shouldn't worry about it either, but I'd like your expert opinion.

Despite the occasional report from someone who insists they became infected through giving oral, those reports never seem to hold up under careful, scientific examination. So I agree with Rod that you are worrying needlessly.

The only confirmed means of HIV transmission sexually are through unprotected (uncovered) vaginal and anal intercourse. So as long as you consistently use condoms for those activities, you will be well protected as far as HIV is concerned.

I don't see any need for testing or for further concern about your incident.

You're welcome. And that's happy news about those other test results.
