cuts on bottom
« on: April 04, 2013, 11:14:27 AM »
hi guys... a couple of day ago i met a tgirl and went to her place. we kissed and went on to perform oral sex to each other (protected).after that we performed frottage to each other also Protected. during her frottaging me she pressed really hard on my ass cheeks with her thumbs that she cut me skin. we continued to frottaging and finished. there was a brief time where her bare cock came near the fresh cuts perhaps even touching the cut. she did not ejaculate. my question is.

1 Can someone be penetrated with out actually knowing during frottage?.very aroused.

2 is there concern that i get tested after her penis and perhaps fluids came directly on my fresh cut? a lot of bodily rubbing?

3 even if she has a cut on her thumbs would that be risky i didnt notice that she has any cuts on her hand?

thank you..

Hi Mario . You didn't have a risk in any of the situations you asked about , none .

# 1 . You would know if you were penetrated , trust me on this .
#2. HIV is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies.Once outside the body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect. For this reason, bodily fluids outside the body do not pose a risk and that means masturbation is not a risk for HIV infection.

#3. You do not need to worry about small cuts or any cuts in the situation you described .

Here is what you need to know to avoid HIV .

 ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED FURTHER HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care checkup, 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 checkups, 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. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid HIV infection. It really is that simple!s what you need to know in order to avoid HIV .

Jeff thank you for your reply ... from your answer i understand that there is no scenario in my situation no matter how rough or how big or small the cut is, that i can't  be infected? i mean i am still a virgin.

one last question is there a concern for hepatitis? .. i am vaccinated for hep b . but what about other types?

sorry and i hope i am not nagging...

You are welcome Mario . You are correct , you didn't have a risk and can safely put this event out of your concerns .

The reason I shared this part with you is because all sexually active adults should be having yearly if not more sexual health check ups because other things like herpes and syphilis and Hepatitis are much easier to acquire .
