As Rod notes, you were not at risk from this encounter.

Receiving a blowjob (unprotected or otherwise) is not a risk for HIV transmission, nor is frottage (rubbing genitals) a risk. It's true that in HIV positive women, the virus is found around the cervix, not the vaginal opening or the vulva.

You do not need to be tested as a result of this encounter. Please take the time to read our Welcome Thread and follow the links to our Lessons to learn more about how HIV is and is not transmitted

Contact with vaginal fluid in the manner you have described is definitely not a risk for HIV transmission.

Yes, when your mind gets overly concerned with those details it can scare you unnecessarily. But you really weren't at risk for transmission in this incident you're concerned about. No testing is necessary in relation to this incident.

In general we do recommend that anyone who's sexually active ought to have a full STD panel done regularly -- at least once a year. There are other STDs out there and some are much easier to acquire than HIV.
