Risky business in Prague?
« on: April 27, 2007, 04:37:35 AM »
Hello, Firstly I just wanna mention that I'm not brightside, I'm Charlie, Brights younger bro. I'm  using his username (and pc) to come on here today rahter than start a new account. I doubt I'll be spending as much time on here as he did!  :D. He told me things got a bit heated on here with him and a few other members so I just wanna state agian that i'm not here to cause any trouble or anything! I had an issue and bright directed me to this forum cos he said it was excellent for advice so here goes. Last summer I was in Prague celebrating my graduation from high school before going to college. I met a Russian girl in a bar and we had sex. I used condoms, so no worries there and I forgot about this for ages until recently. The girl gave me unprotected oral sex and I used my fingers to arouse her. I've read loads of threads on here about oral and 'fingering' not being a risk so I forgot about it again until recently when a buddy at college said he'd heard about someone becoming HIV+ from fingering, but I'm not sure if he was teasing me! Any advice would be great.

I'll give you the benefit of doubt that you are who you say you are. If I see any "Brightisms" creeping into this exchange, I'll know who you really are and you'll be given a time out.

You, as you already know, didn't have a risk in Prague. Your friend was either making a sick joke or he's seriously misinformed. Not one person has ever become infected through fingering and you won't be the first.

Condoms are a girl's best friend

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

I know bright can be a real asshole sometimes, but he does mean well u know, his heart is in the right place. Me and him have different fathers so I think a lot of his weidness comes from his natual dad, but bright is a good guy he loves me so I can't fault him and I'll argue with anybody that does! I didn't really think i had a risk and i feel a real prick for asking this question now but hey I'm a young free and single guy. U know Ann, brightside loved u, thought u were the only one worth trusting on here so I'm glad u replied to my question. Now I know why Rod didn't but hey all is cool, bright is bright but some people on here upset him so I feel a bit fucked because of that, he is my bro! anyways i hope u all r ok cos u guys do a great job man, shit u have so much balls to do it man!
