Rimming with mouth cut
« on: November 27, 2013, 11:59:49 PM »
Hi, I recently an "odd" encounter with a male transexual.  I licked her anus for about 10 minutes while giving her a handjob. Here is the main concern.

I remember clearly that about 1 hr after the encounter I had a bleeding gums.  Also, after the encounter I went to my car.  I started picking my nose and I made my nose bleed.  About 20 mins earlier (during the encounter) I had cum in my hand, which I only wiped with a napkin, but did not use soap and water.

Am I at risk for HIV?  I tested at the 2 week mark, which I know is way early, but I got a negative HIV PCR DNA.  I am worried because I am developing a sore throat (4 weeks after encounter).  Should I worry about putting dry cum in my nose while bleeding?

The risk for sexually transmitted HIV is from unprotected vaginal or anal sex . As long as you use condoms for those two activity's you will avoid HIV , its really that simple .

You did not have a risk for HIV in any of the things you are concerned with . HIV is fragile and is not transmitted on fingers to nose and rimming is not a risk either .

Thank you for your quick reply!  I am trying to understand your reasoning:  Since there was a potential broken skin to semen contact, is the lack of risk because the fluid was exposed to air?

Do you think I should not pursue a second test at 6 weeks, since I am not sexually active (besides this episode).

HIV is rendered unable to infect when exposed to slight changes in PH and temperature outside the human body . No one has ever been infected from picking their nose and you will not be the first . Do you really want to be famous for that ? ... and as I said rimming is not a risk .

It was not a risk and you need not worry you were infected that way and I would not waste time or money testing over this specific incident .
