small risk?
« on: October 21, 2013, 11:33:59 AM »
So, I have been noided out for a while about this. So Im a gay man and I met up with this guy I had been talking to. We started fooling around and grinding naked in my car! Anyway so I laid down on my back and and he got on top of me. So he starts frotagging with me and the head of penis is pressed hard against his anus. I don't think it went in even an inch, wouldn't I have felt that? There was pressure tho, but I'm pretty sure it never went in. If it did it may have been an inch. There was no lube involved and obviously the guy was tight pressing that hard against me. But the ordeal only lasted like 3 seconds and then I told him to get off me and was like " no way, respect my wishes" etc. So how much am I at risk? If it were to go in an inch or two for such a brief period of time would it be high risk? Wouldn't I have felt myself go inside him, even with no lube? Lol am I just being paranoid?

You would have known if you were penetrated . Frottage isn't a risk for HIV and there is no need to test over this specific incident .

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!

Of course I would have known if I was penetrated! That's not what I asked. Lol. My question was wouldn't I have felt if I penetrated him? There was pressure against the head of my penis. But I don't know if it went in or not. If it did go in an inch maybe for 3 seconds, what would the risk be? Thank you so much for your quick reply. You guys are truly doing gods work on this website.

Cup, I don't think you penetrated him. And if you did the risk would have been very low level for a one-time-only and very brief happening. And the risk is significantly lower for the insertive partner than it is for the receptive one.

Testing? Why not do it just for your peace of mind. A negative at 6 weeks means you are virtually guaranteed of a conclusive negative at 3 months. HIV status is never something to wonder about. And I repeat, if you had a risk it was minimal.

So I know that frottage is not an issue and I shouldn't be worried about it. But before you are quick to tell me I'm crazy hear me out. So I met a guy today and we started frottaging, I pressed against his skin by his ass so hard that he bled. I did not enter him or anything, my worry is that if the tip of my penis made those cuts by pressing wouldnt the fresh small amount of blood go into my urethra what pressing hard and making the cuts? Please respond! I'm very worried! :( I just tested negative for a scare in the past...

Please only post in this one thread no matter how long its been or the subject . You can find this thread by going to you profile and selecting show own post and it will take you here .

Frottage is not a risk . HIV is rendered unable to infect when exposed to oxygen due to changes in temperature and PH levels . If there were a massive amount of blood there may have been a negligible risk but you are stressing out over nothing as far as HIV risk in this situation .

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Although you do not need to test over 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.
