Hi-
I am an uncircumcised male and I received a super prolonged blowjob from an escort without protection. Am I at risk for HIV? Does circumcision make a difference? or the duration?   

Thanks

Jim Allen:
Hiya,

Receiving a blowjob lacks the conditions required for acquiring HIV; thus, it makes sense that after 40+ years of this pandemic in terms of BJs, there hasn't been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked"), and you will not be the worlds first.

Being uncircumcised or the duration makes zero difference.

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 and get vaccinated against HPV, Hepatitis A & B.

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 Jim/ team,

Sorry to be annoying- reading Dr. Handsfield, itís seems heís reluctant to say that insertive oral is 0 risk. I know itís still low risk but whatís the reason for this? Also, in the major studies, were the patients not on treatment in the instances where it was known they were serodiscordant? Thank you.
