Curious male - frot, bate encounter with another male risks?
« on: August 01, 2022, 08:05:54 pm »
I am a healthy and drug free male.

I have been curious for a while and I have experimented just mutual masturbation with another male previously, many years ago.
I wanted to try again and I met another man off an app.

We meet up and this is what happened: we masturbate ourselves (not mutual), my pants are down and he rubs his unprotected penis on my buttocks near the crack.
There is no penetration. This last for 3 seconds tops and I stop him and pull up my pants up to cover my butt.

We masturbate and he continues to rub his penis on my now clothed backside.

He finishes by himself and there is no contact with his fluids.
I couldn’t complete, so the interaction was finished at this point.

I’m extremely anxious if his rubbing of his unprotected penis near my crack, would give me HIV or anything else.
It was a couple of inches away from my anal opening.

I rush home and shower thoroughly. Wash portions of myself with hydrogen peroxide.

Can someone please address the risks of this activity?
Do I need to get tested?

Online information mentions frotting as a method of transmission for many STi’s and I am in a daze out of fear.

Hiya,

What you posted here isn't an HIV risk.

Quote
many STiís

Sure there was a risk for other infections, ultimately there is no such thing as "safe" sex, but thankfully, HIV isn't a risk from the activities mentioned, and there is no reason to panic about STIs after every sexual encounter.

Just remember to use condoms for any intercourse and test yearly out of standard routine for HIV, and easier to aquire STIs.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
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

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, and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

Hello Jim,

Thank you so much for your response.

- Do you suggest I take prep immediately to prevent any potential infections?

- Is a 3-week window sufficient to get a panel test done? What other infections am I at risk for?

I am about done with my experiment and Iím unlikely to ever do such a thing again.

Please advise me on the above.

PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis, this is taken before an exposure event, not after so that's not going to help you now.

In short, there was no HIV risk whatsoever from these activities, and no HIV testing, PrEP or PEP is needed because of these activities and i'm not going to pretend otherwise.

Move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse and test yearly out of standard routine for HIV, and easier to aquire STIs.

Well, most people engage in sexual activities with other people more than twice during their lives. I am sure you will have sex again.

For other STIs you mean? The window period is different for each STI but 3 weeks would not cover them all. Look you had a relatively minor STI risk, I see no need to test outside of the yearly routine whatsoever, if you must test talk to your local clinic or healthcare provider.
