Your risk was as close to zero as medical science allows. HIV is a very delicate virus and requires very specific circumstances in order to transmit.

It does not transmit outside the human body (precum on lips counts).

Moreover, saliva contains over a dozen identified elements which neutralize HIV and render it incapable of infection.

Your sexual risks for HIV infection are:

Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.

That is all.

Wear a condom for penetrative vaginal and anal sex and you will avoid HIV infection. It really is that simple!

"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."

Nothing in science is 100%. People who say there is such a thing as 100% or 0% are either not being scientifically accurate or condescending to you.

There has never been a documented case of someone getting HIV from encountering pre-cum on the lips. So if it happens to you then your healthcare will be free, since you would be seriously studied as a scientific anomaly.

Please understand that what you described is in no way a risk for HIV. And yes, I would say the same if you sucked the guy to completion and swallowed.
