Just to be sure
« on: January 09, 2013, 02:53:04 PM »
Thank you guys for all of your help in providing accurate information and calming anxiety.

I've read through the forums but didn't come across this specific question so I apologize for any unintentional redundancy.

I recently had a threesome with two other guys. They performed oral on each other and on me. Is there any risk of precum being in the mouth of one or both of the guys and this posing any sort of hiv risk.

Once again I seriously appreciate any help that anyone with knowledge on this can provide.

God bless and thank you.

Receiving oral sex is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the HIV epidemic there has never been even one confirmed case of transmission to a guy through his having received oral sex. Not one.

It's safe to say you will not make history by becoming the first.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you properly and consistently use condoms for those activities you will be well protected.

This time there is no cause for concern about HIV nor any need for HIV testing. On with your life!

Wonderful! Thank you so much Andy. Just a brief follow up. The fact that there were two guys doesnt change anything? Is there a risk at all if any semen or precum was in the mouth of one of the guys performing oral sex?

I can't tell you how eager I am to move on with my life!

No, no risk. HIV is  a fragile virus and it is not transmited orally. Period.

Let it go and get on with your life. Really.

Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help. I've asked a similar question before and hope that it's only rooted in anxiety. Since my last test I've ONLY received oral sex from men. Two of those occasions were threesomes. The wonderful Andy Velez informed me that this is still not a risk. But I just want to make sure that there is no risk. Has anyone had any concerns over this?

Just want to make sure that precum in the mouth of one guy is a realistic concern.

Thanks everyone.

Also I tested negative about 7 weeks after last giving oral via Oraquick. Just want to make sure I'm clear and being safe.

Thanks so much everyone.

Hi Clearmind , I would never discourage a person from testing for HIV if there was a risk or if its part of a yearly sexual health checkup that all sexually active adults should be having .

Moderator Andy gave you good reliable advice , oral sex isn't a risk for HIV .
As long as you are using condoms consistently for vaginal and anal sex you will avoid HIV .

There are dozens of proteins and enzymes in your saliva that damage HIV rendering it unable to infect , so you can relax and move on from your fears of oral exposure to HIV .

You have used up your 3 free post but if you wish to purchase a subscription please remember to post all of your questions in this thread and do not start another . If you go to your profile page you can select show own post and it will take you to your thread .

Jeff thank you very much. I guess my only concern is if there were precum in the mouth of one of the guys from another guy and then he performed felatio on me, is there any risk there?

Thanks for everyone's help and input. God Bless!

You are welcome ... please know that we do this to prevent infections so if the facts were that you had a risk or was engaging in risky sex we would not hesitate to tell you . You can now move on and put this behind you .
