Cunnulingus with a Canker Sore
« on: June 20, 2012, 12:34:25 PM »
Recently I went to a massage parlour and performed cunnulingus on the attendant.  She was in her late 40's.  At the time I had a couple of canker sores on my tongue.  I also anally rimmed her never sticking my tongue within her anus.  I also solely licked her clit until she came.  Could I have contracted HIV from this encounter?

Nothing you described is considered a risk for HIV.

Just to confirm, the presence of canker sores on my tongue while I was performing anal rimming or cunnulingus doesn't put me at risk of contracting HIV?

No it does not put you at risk if you canker sores on your tongue.

That is a relief, I thought vaginal fluid could enter the blood stream through canker sores.

Aside from the very effective protection which your own saliva affords you, the vaginal fluids which can contain HIV are high up in the cervical area. They are not at the vaginal lips or where your tongue would likely be reaching.

You are worring needlessly. Really.

OralwithCanker:

You haven't logged in here for a long time, so I understand the confusion. Several months ago, we instigated a new rule (outlined at the top of the AM I INFECTED forum) wherevy a person has three free postings, and must take out a subscription (time-based, not post-based) after that. No one was grandfathered in, and as you have had your three free posts, I am afraid that you will have to buy a subscription in order to continue your conversation.

You are NOT allowed to use the PM function in order to get around this rule, but then again you were not allowed to ask HIV related questions in a private message at any rate.

I will, however, indulge you this once, based on circumstances.

Hey there I had a really stupid encounter yesterday with a sex worker. She performed unprotected oral and while I was standing face to face with her the tip of my penis poked her clit/vaginal lips. I got extremely nervous and when I questioned her about it she said it barely touched her and she uses a gel to kill bacteria anyways. Could I contract HIV from this. I'm worried vaginal fluid could have entered my urethra. I appreciate your reply and I for some reason was confused on how to post this so I sent you a PM. I hope that's ok.

WHat you are referring to re: your penis touchnig the outside of her vagina, is frottage. It is absolutely NO risk for HIV. In a woman with HIV, infectious fluids are located rather deep inside the vagina, in a thick mucosa near the cervix. These fluids are not reachable by the tongue, finger, or by poking in the general direction of the vagina.

If you wear a condom for penetrative anal and vaginal sex you will avoid HIV. It's really that simple.

Just because these forums now require a subscription in order to participate doesn't mean that they are not entirely searchable. I daresay that you will be hard-pressed to find a circumstance, a situation, an event that we haven't given risk assessment for during the last several years. But it all boils down to this.

Wear a condom for penetrative anal/vaginal sex.
Do not share IV drug needles.

And that's basically it.
