HIV Prevention and Testing > Do I Have HIV?



Hello everyone,
IĎm a post bottom surgery transman and I had a sexual experience with a guy.
I was naked (with an erection) and he was still wearing his underwear and sitting/grinding on my lap for a couple of seconds. Is there any danger if my penis came near is anus? Penetration probably would be difficult with the underwear still on. My thoughts are running wild that I accidentally penetrated him but Iím pretty sure I would have noticed that despite the fact that I have less sensation in my penis than other men. Would it have made a difference if he hasnít worn underwear?
After that we participated in mutual masturbation which I consider no risk.

Jim Allen:

Frottage/grinding (rubbing against) and masturbation isn't any 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

So there would still be no risk if I touched his anus with my penis? I asked hin and he said I was around that area but nowhere close to penetration. I probably wouldnít be eligible for PEP?
Thank you for your work!

Jim Allen:
It's not an HIV risk. No exposure, and you don't even need testing, let alone PEP.

Move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse, and as you are sexually active, get a routine STI & HIV screening yearly.
