Got a handjob and nipple sucked
« on: March 03, 2011, 06:27:47 AM »
Hi

I recently went to a massage parlor where I got a handjob after 30minutes of oil massage. At no time was the woman undressed. There was no penetrative sex, nothing but a handjob.

While masturbating me she didn't touch my urethra but may have while applying oil. I don't know if she had any cuts on her hand nor do I know whether I had any tiny cuts on my skin. I went back after 3 days and scenned her hand. There was no sign of any cut/wound/scar visible to the eye. Q1)Suppose she had a cut on her hand and her blood came in contact with my urethra or any tiny cut on my body, assuming she was infected, could I also get HIV ?

She did suck on my nipple for 4-5 minutes. I don't think I have had a cut on my nipple for as long as I can remember. I did feel her saliva on my nipple but don't know if she had any cuts or ulcers in her mouth. I didn't feel any pain during the activity so I don't think she created a wound/cut. I realised this 4 days after the event. On checking my nipple I did not see any cut or abrasion. Q2) What are the chances of being infected by HIV by this nipple sucking activity in case (a) there was no cut (b) she caused a small cut while sucking ?

I have been petrified over the last few days. So much that my blood pressure has increased. Please share your knowledge with me.

Many thanks.

varun,

You are worrying needlessly. Nothing that was done to you was a risk for hiv infection. The only confirmed sexual risks are unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse.

Q1. Even if she was bleeding all over your penis, you would not have become infected with hiv. Getting a handjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies.

Once outside the body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect.

Q2. Absolutely NO chance of being infected while having your nipple sucked. Not only is saliva not infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

Here's what you need to know in order to remain hiv negative:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST OVER A HANDJOB OR HAVING YOUR NIPPLES SUCKED, 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.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Thank you Ann.
I have always protected myself.
I didnt really think of the theoretical ifs before doing this otherwise I would have never got into it. I had thought hand jobs were riskless, thoughI was concerned about nipple sucking with cuts on nipple.
I will protect myself always, and those around me by being careful myself. I will get a test done after 90 days, and will make it a routine.

Thank you once again.

Varun,

As long as you have always used condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, I fully expect you to test negative.

To be clear, testing in your case is only for your peace of mind.

Remember, the nipple sucking is absolutely not a risk - whether or not cuts were involved - because saliva is not an infectious body fluid.

I assure you this is my last question on this topic.

Saliva is not infectious, BUT what about any blood from a potential CUT or SORE in the mouth. I cant be sure whether or not she had it. In this scenario if she caused a cut on the nipple would it be risky ?

No more questions. Thank you.

Varun,

Unless you repeatedly punched her in the mouth before she sucked your nipple, there could not possibly be enough blood present to cause concern. As I said earlier, not only is saliva not infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

You did NOT, in any way, shape or form, have a risk for hiv infection.

I have been getting intermittent pain all over my body for the last week, including in my joint. Just getting v anxious about the whole thing. Blood pressure has shot up.

Is there any test that I can do before 90 days. It has only been a week today.

You never had a risk and do not need testing.

The so-called symptoms you are reporting are not in anyway HIV specific. We can't diagnose anything here although I will say what you are experiencing sound more like something stress-related.

You should discuss your symptoms with your doctor.

Testing is absolutely unnecessary for you.

You're welcome. And now you need to move on from this site. HIV is definitely not your problem. If you can't get past your fears then I suggest you see a therapist or other professional to discuss the matter.

If you return again about this non-risk situation you are risking getting a Time Out from the site.

Happily, HIV is not your problem nor the cause of any symptoms you maybe experiencing.

Varun,

Advice? See a doctor about your sore throat. It's nothing to do with hiv as you had NO RISK for hiv infection.

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!
