Anal Fingering risk?
« on: April 22, 2012, 07:26:15 AM »
So I was enjoying a massage a few hours back, when the massage lady decided to massage my anus. It felt quite good, so I let her, then to my horror she decided to stick on of her fingers inside my anus. I think it must have went in about 1 cm for a few seconds when I asked her to pull out... then I relaxed, and then she decided to do it again.

I know that hand-genital stimulation poses no risk, but what about hand anal? Is this activity risky. Should I go for a test?

Danz,

Apropos of nothing she decided to massage your boy pussy?

You lucky thing. :)

Fortune smiles upon you my friend in more ways than one. Getting your puckerstar fingered is not a risk for HIV infection. HIV is a fragile virus, it is transmitted in very particular ways. Those ways are:

Unprotected vaginal and anal sex;
Sharing contaminated injecting equipment such as needles and syringes;
In some cases from HIV positive mother to her unborn or nursing infant.

Please take the time to read our Welcome Thread. It contains links to our lessons on HIV transmission.

You do not need to be tested for HIV as a result of this encounter.

Also, thank you for introducing us to the term "hand anal". We have no doubt it will be of considerable utility, going foward. ^_^

Regards,

MtD

Well don't be.  You were really at no risk of being infected.

Enjoy the "hand-anal".

Because you have already been enlightened, Grasshopper.

HIV is a fragile virus, it is transmitted in very particular ways. Those ways are:

Unprotected vaginal and anal sex;
Sharing contaminated injecting equipment such as needles and syringes;
In some cases from HIV positive mother to her unborn or nursing infant.

Getting a finger up your poop shoot is NOT a risk.

I read some of the other threads, an some of them mention that transmission occurs inside the body. Wouldn't inside the anus counts as inside the body?

Danz,

You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection.

It would count as inside the body if you had a penis inside your anus. You didn't. You had a finger inside your body and fingers do not transmit hiv.

Before you ask about cuts again - if she cut the tip of her finger off before she put it inside you, then you might have a problem. She didn't and you don't.

Not one person has EVER been infected through being anally fingered and you are NOT going to be the first.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

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 SPECIFICALLY OVER HAND-ANAL, 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!



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!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Danz,

Good to hear you're not going to worry, because you have nothing to worry about - at least where hiv is concerned.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse (I'm not talking about fingers, I'm talking about penises, vaginas and anuses), correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!!! Make sure you read through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms correctly and with confidence.
