Risk HIV From Massage and Hand Releif
« on: March 05, 2015, 11:48:46 PM »
Hi, please can you confirm the risk from the following.

1. I received a massage with the lady ending with a Hand Job.
2. What is the risk with a cut on my penis.
3. What if she had a cut on her hand.

So the question in summary is hand to penis risk with a cut.

Many Thanks

You cannot get HIV from a hand job, period.

The risk factors for HIV are ...

Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth.
Very specific health care situations.

Use condoms for vaginal and anal sex consistently and correctly and you will avoid HIV infection, it is that simple.

There is no risk from a hand job, period.  Cuts don't matter because that's not how you get HIV.  You have not had a risk and you have no need to test.

The science of HIV infection is very well known.  Nobody has ever become infected from a hand job, cuts or not cuts.

Many thanks for the reply. And no matter how big the cut etc nothing will change the view that it is not transmitted,

Hi All,

Please will you confirm the following risk factors ;

1) Receiving a Blow Job with a condom
2) Having Intercourse with a condom

Please confirm if the risk is zero based on a condom being used correctly and no holes.

Regards,

It's a rule of the site for members to keep all of their entries in the same thread. Please write only in this thread which contains all of your entries.

And now your latest question...

Nothing but sex with your own hand is 100% safe. But we know from long experience that the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you consistently use condoms for those activities you will be well protected.

Receiving a blowjob with or without a condom is not a risk for HIV.

Condoms provide very effective protection against HIV so intercourse with a condom is not a risk for HIV.

Thank you Anne for your prompt response. So for the un-educated question. But the condom protects the head off the penis hence the no risk factor.

Man, you sure are torturing this issue. Even if you don't have a condom on when receiving oral it would not be a risk.

It's during vaginal or anal intercourse it's important to have the head of your penis covered with a condom.

We're not going to do an endless round of what ifs and repeating the same things over again. If you continue returning over this non-risk situation you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out from the site.

You didn't have a risk. Period. Get on with your life and use condoms for intercourse. It's just that simple.
