Cut on lip + deep french kissing

(1/2) > >>

Hi, I'm a guy. I had a couple of very tiny nicks on the edge of my lip from beard trimming in the morning which slightly bled for about 20 seconds and then closed up. 12hrs later I was deep french kissing a guy at the batthouse, he had quite a rough beard which caused a bit of lip soreness and beard burn but it didn't open up the wound and I felt the wound after and it wasn't visible although I did notice very tiny scabs over the wound in the morning after. We exchanged a lot of saliva, would this pose a risk?

We also gave eachother handjobs and maybe a drop of his precum got on my hand and I rubbed my own penis with the same hand and touched my urethra so it may have come into contact with my urethra.

We didn't engage in any other acts.

Do either of these two things pose a risk?


Neither situation was an HIV risk because HIV is fragile and difficult to transmit. No one has ever been infected once it has been exposed outside the human host.

Have a great day,

Reducing Your HIV risks:
With no exceptions, use condoms correctly and consistently for anal or vaginal intercourse
Talk to a healthcare provider about PrEP as another layer of protection

Get tested yearly for HIV and other STIs.
If you donít use condoms and/or PrEP, test more frequently

Some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other more easily acquired STIs. It is possible to show no signs or symptoms from an STI so testing is the only way to know.

Get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Whatís the ONLY way to know if youíve been infected by HIV or an STI?
Get tested.

Thanks for the response. I'm more concerned about the cut on my lips and the deep french kissing. How risky is this?

Thanks again

Jim Allen:
It's not an HIV risk.

Thank you! This gave me so much peace of mind.
