Body massage & small cut
« on: March 21, 2012, 08:34:45 AM »

I will make it brief.

Yesterday I went to a massage parlor and had a body rub massage.

During the body to body rubbing, I felt sore in my penis as she was too agressive.

After that she gave me a blowjob with condom (which I did not check if the condom is used properly or not)

Later at home, I notice that the cut on my penis may bleed a bit.

I don't know if she has HIV. But if she had, how much is my risk become infected with HIV?

Thanks for your time.

Jeck, there was no risk whatsoever for HIV in your massage incident. Even if she had given you the blowjob without using a condom it still would not have been a risk for HIV transmission.

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

There's no need for further concern about HIV in relation this recent incident.

Yes, even with that nick or whatever to your penis. HIV is a fragile virus and it is not transmitted in the way you are concerned about.

Getting a blowjob is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the epidemic there has never been a confirmed case of transmission to a guy in that manner. It's safe to say you are not going to make history by becoming the first. And believe me we have heard all of kinds of variations on so-called "risks."

You are worrying needlessly. Really.

« Reply #4 on: September 26, 2013, 03:05:06 AM »

I just had an oral sex and protected sex (I checked there is no breakage on condom)

I worried because she have a canker sore on her tongue, is it s possibility for transmitting?

Anyway the protected sex only occur for around 5 secs because I was afraid and don't feel comfortable to continue.

Sorry for asking this kind of question, just need your words to make me calm.

Jeck, it's a rule of the site for members to keep all of their entries in one thread. All of yours are now together here. Please follow this rule in the future.

As to your newest concern, you are worrying needlessly. Receiving oral is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the epidemic there has never been a confirmed case of transmission in that manner. It's safe to say that no matter what your specific details are like her having had a canker sore, you are not going to make history by becoming the first to be infected through oral sex.

There's no need for further concern nor for testing on your part. Period.
