May Have Touched Precum and Sweat in SAUNA with small cut on cuticle

(1/2) > >>

hariharan1945:
Today at the sauna, where it was quite hot, I was jerking off another guy, he was very sweaty and I was masturbating him, I was even rubbing the area between his legs. After that, once I was out I noticed that my cuticles had minor cuts, may have little bleeding.

Are there any chance for exposure since I may have touched his precum and sweat in the hot sauna and this could have been an exposure through the small cut near my cuticles. The skin near my cuticles were peeling off and I only noticed that after I finished masturbating him. Are there any chances for me to contract HIV from this?

Jim Allen:
What you posted here isn't an HIV risk to you.

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

Jim

Hi. Thanks for the reply. Even my my cuticle was bleeding a bit, and I was rubbing his penis and between legs really tightly inside a hot sauna, the precum touched my cuticles which are slightly torn, this isn't HIV risk?

I am just worried because it was quite hot in the sauna, will that allow the HIV virus to survive? Also I was rubbing the part between his legs really closely and there could be precum there.

Jim Allen:
Asked and answered already.

You did not come into contact with viable HIV, and even if you had, your concern lacks a direct route for you to acquire HIV.

HIV is fragile and limited in how it's sexually acquired; it's acquired inside the confines of the human body and not once exposed outside the body as the receptors needed to infect corrode, there are also several other barriers to your concern such as lack of route, see, small cuts, scrapes, peeling skin, skin conditions, bruises, and wounds etc on your hands or fingers also lack the route needed for you to acquire HIV.

The temperature of the sauna makes no difference, and to be clear, contact with sweat or sweating isn't an HIV risk to you either.

Move on wit your life, use condoms for any intercourse and as you are sexually active get a yearly STi & HIV screening out of standard routine.

If my finger with the skin peeling and slightly bleeding cuticle may have fingered the guy, will this be a route for HIV to transmit?
