It has nothing do with HIV and would appreciate you taking those questions to another forum. This is an HIV risk assessment forum.

OK Prince, it's time to call a halt here. You had absolutely no risk for HIV transmission no matter what your head and your crotch smell are telling you to the contrary.

Discuss your hygiene issues with your doctor if you must. There's nothing we can do for you here and we're not going to continue to indulge you in these repetitious exchanges about an unfounded fear as far as HIV is concerned.

Consider yourself warned. If you come back with this stuff again you're going to get a Time Out.

This is not an HIV situation so stop wasting our time.

I want to let this go but I try to smell my crotch sweat and it never gives off that smell now and I cannot let go

Prince, you aren't listening to anyone.   Everyone has told you you have no risk for HIV from the encounters you have described.   It sounds more like to me you have a substance abuse problem since you are having apparent black outs and can't recall your actions.

This is not an issue for an HIV website.   My recommendation would also be that you find a forumn for people with similar disorders and potentially seek help for your substance abuse issues due to these black outs.

There are lots of live chat sites available for people suffering from OCD and other mental health issues.   You will be able to speak with people who have your same fears and issues and hopefully that will lead you to get appropriate assistance including counseling from a professional qualified to determine the appropriate steps to help you.

if my girlfriend's only risk is performing oral sex on male does she need to be tested. She is a virgin other then that. Can she just forget about being tested. She has never had sex just performed oral sex on a guy.

Uh, let's not go Bill Clintonian here. Giving oral is a form of having had sex.

There has been some anecdotal evidence of transmission from giving a blow job. But there is much, much evidence that it's not a risk. There are longterm studies of sero-discordant couples who had lots of protected intercourse and lots of mutual unprotected oral. The results were that not a single sero-negative partner became infected.

As for getting tested, I don't see any need for it. To me it's about what your mutual comfort level is about the issue and the act as to whether to test or not. 

I will caution you about condoms. You should be using them everytime for intercourse until if and when you are in a securely monogamous relationship in which BOTH partners test negative at the same. Then you can decide if you are serious about monogamy and whether to dispense with using condoms.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

Even with ejaculate in her mouth Andy's advice stands.  It's a THEORETICAL risk at best.   Use condoms every time and you will have no worries my friend.

Prince,

This is the FOURTH time I've had to merge your threads! What is it you don't understand about not starting new threads? I'll give you the rundown one more time - follow the instructions next time you come here. Keep starting new threads and I'll give you a time out.

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

lap dance gone wrong
« Reply #60 on: March 06, 2007, 11:18:15 PM »
Earlier I spoke about how I had a lap dance and the button my fly was undone and the next day I smelled vagina on my balls. I have been obsessing that my penis was pulled through the hole and into the womens vagina. Irrational but scary. I have tested at 70 days 10 weeks negavitive with oraquick advance. Is this result conclusive can i forget about this situation.

You never had a risk to begin with so yes it would be conclusive.

cut transmission
« Reply #62 on: March 14, 2007, 08:16:30 PM »
I apologize but the other night I went to a strip club and a stripper sat on my lap. Afterwards I touched where she sat on my jeans and smelled my hand. I thought I smelled her vagina odor on my hand. Is it possible the virus could have entered my body through a cut by my lip when my hand touched my face or through my nostrils. Sorry

Prince, you need to read the lesson about transmission on this site. There's a link to it in the welcome thread which opens this section.

HIV is a fragile virus which is transmitted in very specific ways, essentially either unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse.

There was no risk whatsoever for transmission in your incident even IF the woman is HIV=.

Read the lesson. You are worrying needlessly.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

This has got to stop and right now. This is at least your second thread about lapdancers, crotchsmell and a few other irrational fears. You haven't had a risk in any of these adventures but if you can't believe that ask yourself why you continue to participate in these activities if you think it risky.

This isn't a support mechanism for your groundless fears, either get over it or get some help in dealing with these anxiety issues and stop creating a new thread everytime you feel the need to post.

Prince, how many time do  you have to be told, DO NOT START NEW THREADS? This will be the fifth time Ann will have to merge your threads. Go back to the "Welcome" thread and reread the guidelines on posting.

Prince,

As Rodney said, this is the FIFTH time I've had to merge your threads. It is apparent to me that you are not hearing a word we say to you, whether we are telling you about hiv transmission or how this site works. We may as well be talking to a brick wall.

I'm giving you a time out - because there is no point us wasting our time when you don't read our responses. Since it is obvious you haven't bothered to read the Welcome thread like you've been repeatedly asked to, I'll quote the time out policy here.

Quote
Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

I suggest you use your time out to seek counseling - and why don't you try reading your thread and actually taking note of what we've said? The answers aren't going to change.

Ann

PS - do not create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be banned permanently, no questions asked.
