Cut & Handjob + fingering
« on: November 11, 2017, 10:18:57 am »
I had a grindr encounter last night.

On the way in I snagged my finger on the door. Didn't think much of it.

We gave each other hand jobs and then I fingered him, I noticed it stung a little, so I took my finger out, and that is when I saw the cut from the door. It was still bleeding a little. Was this a risk?

Also was it a risk while giving each other hand jobs that his precum got into this cut?

Thanks.

Hi,  This was in NO WAY risk for HIV, there has never been a single documented case of transmission from fingering are giving a hand job.
If these were your only concerns it is safe to move on.

Best,

Wade

I went over a to a guys house tonight, who said he was positive but undetectable.

We just jerked off, but he did got on top of me, and my penis got pretty close to his anus. I'm pretty sure I didn't dip, I mean, it just doesn't slide in, especially with no lube, and I'd feel the pressure if I actually did, but if for some reason I did, does this warrant PEP?

And would it be okay to resume unprotected intercourse with my partner.

Thanks.

You did not have a risk for HIV infection because of the encounter you describe in your latest post, since you did not have unprotected sex (for risk assessment purposes, the moderators of this forum presume all partners are HIV positive, regardless of claims they may be "negative" or "positive but undetectable").

The fact that matters is that you simply did not have unprotected sex.

You do not need PEP because of the activities you describe (mutual masturbation, frottage).

Presuming you are HIV negative (when considering all your activities, not just the one you describe in your latest post) and that your partner is HIV negative, you can resume your unprotected sexual activities. 

However, if your partner is HIV positive due to activities unknown to you, or that you are HIV positive from other activities you have not described, you should not engage in unprotected sex.

Is it safe to say that if I somehow, for seconds at most, brushed his anus to wear it "loosened" as it was in that area, I'd be okay?

Thank you in advance, as I know after three posts I will no longer be able to comment.

As it loosened the area?

I truly have no idea what you did, so look ill make it really easy for all of us.
If you stuck your penis in him its called unprotected intercourse and a risk, anything however you did with your penis including rubbing against him or his anus and/or any other part of his body was simply not a HIV risk to you. 

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions.

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.

More information on HIV Basics, PEP, TaSP and Transmission can be found through the links in my signature to our POZ pages, this includes information on HIV Testing

Kind regards

Jim
