Receiving oral sex is absolutely NO RISK for HIV.

The other guy touching his penis and then touching you is also absolutely NO RISK.

If you wear a condom for penetrative anal/vaginal sex, and don't share IV drug needles, you will avoid HIV. It's really, seriously that simple.

"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."

Receiving oral is one of the most common of sexual activities. No matter what details are thrown into the mix, in the entire history of the epidemic there has never been even one confirmed case of transmission of HIV in that manner.

It's safe to say you are not going to make history by becoming the first. There is no need for further concern on your part or for HIV testing.

What you need to keep in mind is that the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you consistently use condoms for those activities you will be well protected.

Stress can make you ill. Poking your lymph nodes can make them swell and become painful.

You are not going to be the first person in history to get HIV from receiving a blowjob.
