excessive Pre-cum - rubbing/frottage
« on: November 18, 2011, 04:19:46 PM »
Hi there

I was hoping you could assess my situation.

I’m a 23 year old UK guy and I met a guy and went on a few dates with him. Each time we ended up at his and engaged in mutual pleasuring / frottage - the last time I saw him was on October 18th. We did not engage in oral as I do not like giving/receiving oral. Now this guy pre-cums a lot and I know his pre-cum got on my anus (sorry to be blunt) - he did not penetrate me. 

Assuming this guy is positive, I was wondering whether him getting his pre-cum on my man hole / the pink flesh  (sorry to be so blunt) put me at risk of contracting HIV? I had minor cuts from shaving earlier on in the day, would pre-cum getting on any cuts cause infection?

I went to a clinic for a full STD test and they did a HIV test on me. The HIV test was different from the one I’ve usually done. I  have usually had a rapid HIV test in my past check ups where you get the result back immediately but with this HIV test I had to wait 15/20 mins to get my result. The blood result came back negative. I took the test on 15th November -  28 days after my last pre-cum encounter with the guy. 

I’ve been ill this past week - temperature, tongue ulcer, sore throat, coughing, sneezing and I am very congested - but my symptoms are clearing up quickly.

For HIV transmission to take place in sex it has to be unprotected penetrative anal or vaginal sex.

RapidRod is right. There is absolutely NO risk for HIV in the situation you described.
"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
