anal fingering
« on: May 23, 2011, 11:32:17 AM »
Hi,

I would like to seek ur advice for this experience.

I have went to a massage parlor and was given a massage by the lady with both of us naked. She was all over me and eventually jerked me off using her breasts. I did some fingering on her and I had some broken skin such as cuts and abrasions on my body. My concern comes from the point that my cuts and abrasion wounds might have touched or been in contact with her vagina and or fluids. Also she might have similar wounds which might have been contact with mine.

Is this a cause for concern? Do I need to go for testing?

Appreciate your answer on this. Thanks.

Adi,

You have not had a risk for hiv infection.

Hiv is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected 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. This is one of the reasons you do not need to worry about cuts or scrapes or sores or whatever.

Another reason is that hiv can only infect a very few, very specific types of cells and these cells are not found on or just under the surface of the skin nor in superficial cuts or sores.

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 MASSAGE, 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!

Hi,

I have went to a massage parlour and was fingered in the anus by the female masseur.

Is there any risk in this incident? Considering that I had some bleeding due to constupation.
she might have scratched any skin tissues while doing it?

Please advise.

Hi,

I have a exposure query to seek your advice.

Recently I had protected intercourse with a female sex worker. After the session, I realised that I had some abrasion on the head of my penis. This might be due to the hand job that she gave me before the penetration. She also gave me a blowjob before capping me with a condom for vaginal sex.

Is there any exposure to HIV? Do I need to get tested?

Adi,

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep everything in one thread. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.


Please re-read your entire thread, particularly my first response to you.

You have not had a risk for hiv infection. You did all you needed to do and wore a condom for anal or vaginal intercourse. The ONLY proven sexual risks for hiv infection are unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse - so none of the other things you've worried about have been risks.

While you did NOT have a risk and do NOT need to test over this specific incident, as a sexually active adult you should be having a full sexual health check up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year. Again, re-read my first response to you.
