Mixing excessive drinking with casual sex is a big red flag here.

 I've known all too many who became infected because they couldn't negotiate safer sex when drunk. If you have a drinking problem then get some help with that.

Thanks for your advice Andy, I really do not drink often but when I drink I do bad choices.

I have learned I lot here in this forum, but I have in my mind, what if, sorry.

 But assuming it was a normal situation I know everything is going to be fine, because I know you guys really have experience in this.

And if you have a recurrent problem with excessive drinking, then that is the real problem you should be looking into addressing.

You weren't at risk this time but excessive drinking definitely impairs one's ability to negotiate safer sex.

Hi Andy,

Sorry for not replying soon. Yes, you are right Andy, I have a drinking problem. I know drinking makes me horny and stupid. However I really try to be safe, I was using condom even for a blow job, but I get scare of knowing that there was blood in her mouth when she was sucking my pene and even more scare that if the piercing got stuck in to my pene and even more if this girl made this to happen and was not an accident.

I know I am like many people in here very scare by thinking “what if”

I know everything is going to be fine because you guys say there is not risk.

Your trust, or distrust in people might or might not be legitimate. However, no one has ever been recorded as having been infected through a blowjob. You will not be the first in humanity.

I urge you to address the following:

Having sex whilst drunk.

feeling that prostitutes are lesser than other people.

I think you are very right about what you say to me of “address the following”, but I do not consider this a normal blow job, also you can see that I feel stupid and scare for what happened.  I do not know If I should get tested for this or just let it go and continue with my normal life??

Please do not think badly about me( i do not know what really is the problem with me ). I know I am the only one responsible for future decisions.

 you guys say I was not in risk and I believe, but I think I have a very big problem by being to scare of getting HIV. However I will follow your advice  of not drinking and thinking what if.

Thank you for your advice. You guys really help me not to be to scare about this.

Cone,

Despite what you think, you did have a totally normal blowjob, given the huge numbers who have lip and/or tongue piercings these days. There's absolutely nothing special about your rather mundane situation.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected through getting blown and you certainly will not be the first.

You got a blowjob. Get over it.

You are long-overdue for a Time Out.

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

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.


Please consider yourself warned!

Thank you Ann.
I just want to ask one more question please, I notes that the girl when got hurt she touched her piercing on the outside part. It is very clear that her fingers got blood from the incident (and this blood was not in contact with saliva). I remember that the condom I was using was not covering all my pene only like half. Assuming that the blood was on my pene from her hand on the part with not codom, is not a risk right? Please just respond to me this question, I am asking because after the blow job I saw the blood on her in the outside part of the piercing.

Please just respond to this, I get everything you say about that saliva kills the virus. but in this case the blood went from her to my pene in couple seconds.



Thank you.

HIV would not be transmitted in a viable form by hand to your penis. You are worrying needlessly.

Hi,

 I have a question that I and my friends want to know.

How can you  not get HIV from a needle stick, let say the blood is only expose to the air 1 second and then the  needle is stick in to the person, in other words the positive person sticks himself and then the other person at the same time.

I saw that you guys argue that is not risk situation.

Thank You, I hope all you people are fine.

In needle transmission, blood is drawn up into a hollow-bore needle, then immediately injected into another person. This happens when IV drug users share a needle, and happens from time to time (rarely) in a hospital setting by accident.

The hollow bore needle gives the virus a few seconds of protection from oxygen, one of the elements that render it incapable of infecting.

This does not happen with HIV when exposed to oxygen. Not even for a minute.

Sorry, but I do not understand very well the last sentence

 “This does not happen with HIV when exposed to oxygen. Not even for a minute”

My question is if the blood is expose to the oxygen “1 second,  no 1 minute” can infect?

Not one second. There is absolutely NO RISK.

Please stop parsing my words in order to poke holes in my statement.

Sorry for parsing you words but as you can see English is my second language and I just try to make things clear.

  My last question is why you guys claim this?... because no person has ever been infected in this way?

Scientific evidence and you won't be the first.

We're not going to indulge you any further in speculative exchanges about HIV which began with the non-risk about biting during kissing.

Your concerns have been answered. If you come back with more of this stuff you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out from the site.

Get on with your life. You don't have an HIV problem.

Go ahead and test if you need to just for your peace of mind. I don't expect anything other than a negative result.

Risk is not about whom you are with including sex workers, but about what you do. As long as condoms are used properly everytime for vaginal and anal intercourse, then you will be well protected from sexual risk. It really is that simple.

Cone,

You've been coming here for over two years now and that's long enough for us to expect you to understand how hiv is and is not transmitted. We're not a hand-holding service for you to come running to every time you have a sexual experience. We give you the information you need to know and then we expect you to think for yourself. Please start thinking for yourself - it's liberating.

Hiv is transmitted through unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse, through sharing drug injecting equipment and mother-to-child during pregnancy or delivery. If you haven't been doing the first two things and if you're not an unborn child, then you haven't been at risk. It's a simple as that.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!!!

Re-read your entire thread until it finally sinks in.

I'm giving you that long-overdue time out you've been repeatedly 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.

Ann
