Burn injury fluid hiv?
« on: March 06, 2021, 09:14:37 pm »
Hello to the respected admins and moderators

I went for a massage service that i was listed online. Upon entering the room, i noticed the apartment to be quite dirty which set off alarm bells. Another set of alarm bells rang out when i saw the massuese drip some ointment on the base of her palm. When asked, she replied it being a burn injury.

During the massage there was times where her hands were in contact with my pubic area and penis and was potentially exposed to her burn mark? I know transmission is via the mucous membranes and un intact skin right?

Im mostly afraid of the burn injury and fluids entering my urethra. Do fluids from a burn mark carry hiv?

I enquired her regarding her past history, no boyfriend, has just been doing nuru and handjob services.

Was i at risk here? Can i move on?

Hiya.

What you posted is no HIV risk whatsoever. Intact or nonintact skin would make no difference at all. Relax and move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection going forward.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

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

Kind regards

Jim

Hello Sir, thank you for the promt reply

I didnt mention the fact that she has a burn mark she sustained recently? Does fluids from a burn injury carry the virus? Also, im still abit worried it may/may not have entered my urethra as she was touching my groin area with her bare hands?

Totally irrelevant.

I heard you the first time and I've answered already.

HIV is incredibly fragile, highly limited and sexually only transmitted inside the confines of the human body, an example of this would be intercourse. Contact through touching or rubbing with skin, fluids, scrapes, minor wounds, cuts etc etc etc is not an HIV risk to you and hence nobody has ever acquired HIV the way you fear.

Okay, you feel she is a slob ... what does this have to do with your HIV concerns?

None of your business to be asking about her past, whatever she says is irrelevant and even if she had slept with the entire city it would be irrelevant in regards to your HIV risk or not.  You are paying a sex worker for a service, that's about it.

It's not who you have contact with it what activities you choose to engage in that are an HIV risk or not.

Move on with your life. Use condoms for any intercourse, as you are sexually active test yearly out of standard routine for HIV & STI's.

Hello respected Admins and Moderators

I had another encounter so im using this final post to the best.

I met up with a domestic worker. Had a car ride and things started to get frisky.

There was no penetration during the session. It was just kisses, nipple bites(me receiving it), nipple licks and me touching her pubic area through her thights.

My main alarm bells are mostly during the nipple licks, she bit me quite hard that made it hurt. I know that saliva dont transmit HIV but how about blood in saliva?

At the same, im worried about her vaginal fluids. Not sure if she was was wet, as i was too in the moment to realize. Im quite worried as she and me both touched my bare penis. Also, not really sure if she touched her bare vagina and had fluids on her hand when she was touching my penis, and me having her fluids on my hand when i was touching her through her thights.

Ive been reading up alot about transmissions but most of the articles are vague at best. I was hoping the moderators will be able to help me answer my questions

Was i at risk? Can i move on? Should i get tested?

Hi,

Saliva is hostile towards HIV breaking down the receptors needed to infect. Anyhow, the biting of your nipples, as mentioned here, lacks several conditions required to acquire HIV.

Her touching herself and then touching you isn't a concern either, the fluids you are concerned about are the wrong ones and don't contain HIV. Besides, HIV is fragile and only sexually transmitted inside the confines of the human body, as in never leaving or being exposed outside the body. As an example like during intercourse.

Move on with your life. Use condoms for any intercourse, and as you are sexually active, test out of standard routine at least yearly for HIV & STI's.
