Body Fluids Everywhere
« on: April 05, 2007, 05:41:59 PM »
I have been visiting massage parlors for about a year now. I always get Hand Jobs Only. I always though this was a safe way to go outside my marriage. This was until a friend of mine got me to think.
He ask me, "Arent you worried about all of the sperm that must be laying all over the massage table and oil bottles ect." "Who knows if any of those men are infected with HIV." He said I could be laying in it, the massage girl could have not washed her hands, or there could have been sperm on the oil bottle that she didnt wipe off. He said there were a number of places she could come in contact with infected sperm and then massage my penis with it on her hands." So I have been very scared the last couple of weeks. My last HIV test Was 6 months ago for a life insurance poilcy. The last 3-4 day I think I have been looking for symptoms I saw on the internet, I keep feeling weird sensations in my groin and neck, I dont know if my nodes are swolen, but something feels weird, or could it be in my head?

Questions:
1) If the massage girl has a previous customers sperm on her hands, can it be massage into my penis and infect me.

2) Is the time between customers (10-15min) enough time for HIV to be destroyed outside the body making it unable to infect in the way I described in my previous question.

3) Do I need to get another HIV test

4) can anxiety make you feel weird body sensations if your constantily paying attention to them.

bob,

1. No
2. Yes
3. No
4. Yes.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse. Not one person has ever become infected from getting a handjob, or simply by going to a place where others have gotten handjobs and laying down in the same place they did.

Unless you're also having unprotected intercourse at the massage parlors, then you are worrying unnecessarily about hiv. You haven't had a risk and you don't need to test.

Please read through the Welcome Thread and follow the Transmission Lesson link and read it.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Bob,

You posted this thread twice and I deleted the duplicate post. While you're reading the Welcome thread I linked you to above, please also read and take note of our forum posting guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

Bob,

Keep your hands off your glands. Feeling them all the time will irritate them, make the swell and keep them swollen. If you're worried about them, you'll have to go see your doctor face to face and show them to him/her. We cannot possibly tell you what is or is not going on with your glands.

We CAN tell you that you have NOT had a risk for hiv infection in what you have brought to the forum. No risk and no need to test again.
