P.S

We have covered these activities before and explained they are not an HIV risk. You need to apply the information provided to you previously instead of asking again.

Please don't post again about activities previously assessed.

I am sorry, but having someone shoot semen on my bottocks had never happened to me, and given that it is the bottom area, I had doubts about the possibility of some amount of seminal fluid being absorbed by the rectal mucosa and that being a risk of infection.

You have posted before about fluids exposed to the environment that then are afterwards in possible contact with a mucous membrane and it's been explained that this isn't an HIV exposure.

HIV is fragile, once exposed outside the confines of the human body the receptors needed to cause infection breakdown, it's also limited by other barriers and requires quantity and direct route and that's before we even get to the barriers inside of the body.

You have posted 29 times, most of it is about no-HIV risk situations and about variations of the same activities.

What you need to know is this, your only sexual risks for acquiring HIV are vaginal or anal penile penetration and there is only a minute risk when giving a blowjob that doesn't require testing outside of the standard yearly routine.

So use condoms for any intercourse, consider PrEP an additional layer of HIV prevention and as you are sexual active test out of standard routine yearly for HIV and easier to acquire STI's.

NOTE:
Do not post anymore about sexual exposures/concerns unless it's about condomless intercourse or you gave someone a blowjob.

Ok, understood.

One final question: is there any risk involved whatsoever by receiving a blowjob?

Thanks in advance.

I wish you well but if you continue to post it will lead to a ban from the forum.

Look sex comes with risks.

As someone who is sexually active, it's a risk you have to learn to accept and cope with. You can reduce your risks by using condoms during intercourse.

The levels of risk for various STIs depends greatly on differences in how the diseases or infections are transmitted.  Some infections (Not HIV) are transmitted primarily by skin-to-skin contact, however, there is no need to stress or freak out or run out and test for STI's after every sexual encounter.

Simply use condoms to reduce your risks/exposure and test at least yearly for  HIV and the far easier to acquire STI's out of standard routine.

Quote
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 easier to transmit STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Oh sorry. I just remembered I gave someone a blowjob a couple of months ago. How big is the risk there?

Would've never done it had I know there's a risk to get HIV from it. I was under the impression the only way to get HIV was through unprotected anal/vaginal sex?

Now I'm worried :(

Hello,

I'd like to get a risk assessment: on Saturday morning I was inside the dark room of a cruising club and I leaned to perform nipple play on a guy who was sitting. As I do this I feel a foreign body poking/touching my upper butt crack area. I didn't realize that by leaning, my boxer shorts and my pants went down a little, uncovering my upper butt crack area. As soon as I feel this foreign body I move and stand up and it was indeed a guy standing behind me naked from the waist down and stroking his penis. I didn't feel any fluid when the guy touched me with his penis and as I had my pants and boxer shorts on despite having come down a bit due to my leaning, there was no penetration. Is there any risk whatsoever here since there was contact with the upper part of butt crack, therefore anal area? It also worries me that after this incident I saw the guy performing anal and oral sex on someone without protection, and I don't know what he could've done before having his penis poke my upper butt crack. 48 hours have not passed since, so I could still request PEP.

Thanks in advance.
