« on: August 24, 2013, 01:54:29 PM »
Hello everyone.
I have a question concerning  mutual masturbation.
I had mutual masturbation with a man, unknown status, I know this is not a risk perhaps I am not circumcised and my foreskin when stretched get sore now would this put me a risk of being infected in case on his hand there was some seminal fluid.
I would appreciate if you could take the time to answer to this question as really worried.Thanks for your help.

You need not worry , masturbation isn't a risk .

Use condoms correctly every time you have vaginal or anal sex and you will not have an exposure to HIV . Its simple .

Thanks Jeff for taking the time to answer I really admire what you guys are doing.
My concern was mainly regarding the 'bruise' on my foreskin that could lead to the virus to enter maybe I am just too paranoid..

Unless you engage in unprotected penetrative vaginal or anal sex you need not worry about HIV during sex .

Masturbation isn't a risk , bruise or no bruise . No one has ever been infected in that manner so you can relax and move on .

Sorry i need to ask again regarding mutual masturbation
.Some of his seminal fluid ( after he has ejaculated) went on my fingers and I have  ofter cuticles on my hand. Is this put me a risk of be infected ?
Can this situation still be not a risk ?
Is there a possibility to be infected through small cut or cuticles on hands?
Is the virus able to infect through these?or how big these cut should be to be infected?
Thanks again for your patience . Worried again!

You didn't have a risk unless you engage in unprotected penetrative vaginal or anal sex you need not worry about HIV during sex .

No one has ever been infected in the manner you are concerned about .

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME for this incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, 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 check-ups, 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!
