Advice on upcoming trip
« on: September 25, 2006, 04:44:01 PM »
I think i already know the answers i will get but it means alot getting honest advice from real experts.

i was away on vacation for 2 weeks in cuba, i ended up french kissing 3-4 girls for few mins durin my stay.. my mouth was usually pretty dry because of the weed i smoke, i did not notice any visable cuts or blood from the girls mouth/lips but anything is possible.. and myself well not the best oral health but i didnt have any soars at that time. 

does this warrent an hiv test? other then that i had protected oral and vaginal sex 3 times during my stay,

thanks for the advice

Your other four posts in this forum were to give "advice", and now you come here with this basic question? You should know by now that kissing is NOT a risk of hiv infection no matter what sort of spin you want to put on it.

Don't let me catch you giving advice here again when you don't even know this basic info.

Advice on upcoming trip
« Reply #3 on: January 15, 2007, 08:48:27 AM »
Long time member, apreciate the advise i have recieved over the years.

Iam just looking for some honest advise here, i will be away on a trip to down south with some friends and i already know i will be placed in siutations where i will have sex with different girls down there.  I will be high & drunk most likly, but iam usually pretty careful in my sexual escapades even tho im high/drunk.

Now i plan on using condoms for all activies including even oral sex.  There will be some deep kissing i hope thats not a problem for hiv?, so unless a condom breaks do i have a reason to test when i get back home???

I would like to go down on some of these girls but iam not sure of the hiv risk there?

and whats the word with using 2 condoms? and having some water based lube inbetween the two condoms to prevent friction anyone expereince with this?

also condoms that come with lube already is it a better idea to add addtional water based lube any advantages or disadvantages to this?

apreciate the advise as always.

When I wrote that back in September, I was annoyed that you thought you knew enough to be giving advice here, while at the same time asking very basic questions. I'm sure they were serious questions, which makes it all the more alarming that you want to give advice.

I hope you have read those condoms and lube info pages...

The truth is i do know alot because i have read alot trust me, but when it comes to dealing with my own situations i usually turn to others as i think my info and logical has flaws in it. or maybe i just dont believe myself, its always easier to tell someone not to worry abot something, until you are in their shoes.

Whatever you do or do not know, the fact that you come here yourself to ask such basic questions takes away any credibility you may think you have when answering the questions of others. This is just one of the reasons why we are very careful about who we allow to answer questions in this forum. It can be like the blind leading the blind otherwise.

When you go on your trip, you can have all the sex you want, just make sure you are using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every single time, no exceptions. Make sure you are using them correctly, because a correctly used condom rarely breaks, and I mean rarely. I've NEVER had one break. Do NOT use more than one condom at a time, ever. One is quite sufficient, two can be dangerous.

Thanks Ann im going to take your advice on not using 2 condoms, and going to make sure the condoms are used correctly with plenty of lube as to avoid friction and hopefully this will prevent any breaking.

on a side note if i wanted to change my userid is this possible please advise?
