Odd situation.......
« on: February 07, 2008, 07:11:10 PM »
hey guys writing to you from the uk......

I got a kind of embarrassing situation on my hands here, and I haven't been able to sleep properly for the past 2 months. Okay so here goes; I was in Botswana for holiday, in December. A couple of friends and I got a bit drunk and decided to go out on the town. So basically I got dared into doing something with a prostitute, which in hindsight was not the wisest of ideas to follow through on. So seeing as I was in Botswana (high AIDS situation), I thought the safest thing I could do was to engage in outer course. This is the embarrassing part; seeing as i was a little tipsy, i opted for the kinky route....so she basically gave me a footjob- where a woman uses her feet to make a guy orgasm. The part I am scared of is that there was no protection involved, i.e.: I did not use a condom when she gave me the footjob. Although the only contact I had with her was her feet touching me at my special place (manhood), and she may have sucked on my toes and I sucked on her toes as well, I am still worried as hell bout the risks involved, as this happened in a random abandoned alley, where she could have got cut on her foot. Later after examining my self there appeared to be no cuts or abrasions on me, and as far as I could tell none of her Ďfluidsí came into contact with me. I tried looking at the other forums, but the closest posts I could find to my situation were about handjobs. About three weeks later I came down with the flu, which the doctor said was going around at the time, since then no other illnesses have been contracted by me.

I know this whole debacle sounds crazy, and you most prob laughing or disgusted but I am in desperate need of your help and most wise opinion. I am only 20, and have never even kissed a girl, let alone had full intercourse yet, so hopefully you can see why I am scared about this.

I went for an HIV test two weeks after the incident, and the test was negative. I also went for health insurance blood test between three and four weeks after the incident. Its been 4 weeks since that insurance test, and they have not said anything bout the results so far so I donít know if thatís a good thing. So I was wondering if I was at risk of HIV, and should I go for another test? Please help, the worrying over the past 8 weeks has been hell!

I suggest you read the Lessons Transmission. The link can be found in the "Welcome" thread at the top of the forum.
