little worried
« on: August 02, 2015, 11:16:58 PM »
Hi everyone, friday night i went to a tranny bar and had alot of drinks. I went home with one of the dancers. We performed unprotected oral sex on each other and ended with mutual masterbation. I had a cut on my penis shaft from wearing a cock ring. His semen landed on my hand and penis,and i stupidly started to masterbate myself with his semen which may have come in contact with the fresh cut on my penis. When i went home i fell asleep and didnt shower until i woke up. I am worried that i may have exposed myself to hiv. I called him the next day and he said he was clean but im still worried

You can relax as you never had a risk.  Masturbation is not a risk for infection and sexual fluids are NOT infectious, once outside the body.  Oral sex is also not a risk for infection.  HIV is a very fragile virus.  Its outer surface becomes damaged, immediately when leaving the host; where changes in temperature, pH and moisture levels, alter the HIV outer surface, rendering it unable to infect.  The mouth is another barrier, as it protects us from pathogens that we encounter daily and it contains over a dozen proteins and enzymes that alter HIV, leaving it unable to infect.

There have been no fewer than three separate serodiscordant couples studies (where one person is HIV positive, the other negative.)  These couples were tracked for three. five and ten years.  The couples used condoms for penetrative vaginal and anal sex, but NO BARRIER at all for oral sex.  Any kind of oral sex.

These studies yielded NO infections.

You have not had a risk and you do not need to test over this event.

Thanks joe, ive just been worried from reading internet info on the subject matter. The cut on my penis was open and bleeding slighty which may have come in contact for exposure with me masterbating with his semen after he ejaculated

If there was HIV in the semen you you came into contact with would not have been viable. HIV is a very fragile virus and would not have been transmitted in the manner you are concerned about.

As Joe has told you, you are worrying needlessly.
