Nikol Nikol - Receiving blowjob

(1/2) > >>

Nikol Nikol:
Hello! I am in a similar situation with a small difference. I am a gay man and also got sucked intensively  in a casual encounter for like 5-10 minutes, 36h ago. I did not give him any oral.  The difference is that from time to time I have a small dermatitis in the skin of my penis (in the middle of the penis, not in the glans). The skin is not cracked, there is no bleeding, it doesnít hurt at all, itís just a bit red and drier (like when these red tiny veins are a bit more visible and maybe a tiny bit sensitive). Am I at risk? Should I look for PEP? Or wait 30 days and get tested? Or would you be confident I am not at risk?

Read your post three times; what you posted here wasn't an HIV risk to you.

Move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards

Thank you Jim! I read many posts where you consistently assure people that being sucked (insertive oral) is not a HIV risk. And thatís super helpful info, to keep people like me sane in these circumstances 😅. The only extra worry in my head is really this dermatitis, as the skin of my penis is not ď100% healthyĒ. And if this could potentially be an entry point for HIV during insertive oral sex. Once more, thank you for your work! :)

Jim Allen:
You're welcome.

Dermatitis isn't a route for you to acquire HIV, and the blowjob lacked exposure to viable HIV.
