So let me get this straight.
« on: August 22, 2007, 07:16:03 PM »
Hello Peoples

After much searching I think I've found a website with up to date HIV/AIDS info. From what I read in the lessons section and in some older post these encounters pose no HIV risk.

I gave and received unprotected oral with my new girlfriend but use condoms for penetration. We plan to get tested together at the end of the month.

During a soccer game there was a collision with myself and a couple defenders. I had some blood splashed in my face, maybe my eyes too from one of the guys when he got an elbow to the mouth.

During a fight I got some of the other guys blood on my hands and arms. I had no cuts or abrasions that I could see/feel.

A young lady at a massage parlor gave me a hand job and then rubbed he very ample bum against my penis until I came quite forcefully all over her posterior. There was no penetration.

I use two condoms and baby oil for lube while have anal sex with another young lady. Yes I know one condom at a time and no petro based lube from now on. The condoms did not break.

As far as I understand none of these encounter pose a real risk to me or the girls in question and I do not need to get tested for these specific situations. But I should get tested twice a year anyways.

Let me know if I've got this straight.

Yes, Jerry, you've got it straight. You weren't at risk in any of those situations. Fortunately the doubling of the condoms didn't break but that is definitely a no-no. One fresh latex condom will do the job. They provide very effective protection. And of course use only a water-based lube. Forget about the baby oil.

A full std panel every six months for anyone who's sexually active is a good plan.

Damn that was fast. Thanks Andy. Just one more question. Were any of my ladies at risk from me?

None of the activities put any of them at risk.

Theoretically, and I emphasize "theoretically," if you were HIV positive the person sucking you could be at risk. But in the real world of HIV we don't find people getting infected that way, especially if ejaculation doesn't take place. Cases of transmission to someone who is giving a blowjob job end up for the most part with other factors involved that make it very questionable about how transmission really took place.
