should i be worried?
« on: September 15, 2013, 10:05:34 PM »
hi,

last night i had an encounter with a transsexual (m to f) escort.  she said she was hiv negative and i had seen her negative test results which were posted online.  most recent was 2013 march, but went back to 2012 june. during the encounter, we did not have penetrative anal sex.  her penis never penetrated my anus at any time, nor did mine to hers.  she gave me protected oral and i gave her protected oral.   she then attempted to mount me and pressed my protected penis to her anus but i quickly stopped that as i did not want to have anal sex due to the risk.  we agreed not to have penetrative anal sex.  we then masturbated and engaged in frottage (i believe i still had the condom on).  then she penetrated my anus with her fingers fairly forcefully, and masturbated me after removing the condom.  she also licked my anus.  then i got into a mounting position and masturbated her penis with my hand (can't remember if it was protected at the time), pressing it to my butt but not into it. she then masturbated herself and ejaculated on my chest and arm but not very much.  i then masturbated but did not orgasm.  i noticed that my anus bled very slightly when i wiped it afterwards.

what sort of risk was this activity?  i plan to get an hiv test after 6 weeks.  i'm super paranoid and suffer from anxiety and this is really affecting me.

The risk factors for HIV are ...

Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth
Very specific healthcare situations.

You did not have a risk for HIV and do not need to test over this specific incident however 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!

Hello!

I carefully read your post and need to tell you that you had NO risk in any of the activities you described.

Even if you had anal sex, you wore a condom. THAT is the most important thing. The rimming, fingering, mounting, none of this was a risk in any way whatsoever.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

ok... thanks for the replies. the main thing i'm worried about is that when i was masturbating her and pressing her penis to my butt, it was possibly bleeding from the finger penetration and i'm not sure if her penis had a condom on at that point. assuming she did not, is that a risk factor?

That ws not a risk factor. She may have been exposed to YOUR blood if you were profusely bleeding, but SHE was not a risk to YOU.

HIV cannot be transmitted outside the body, you see.
