am i at risk from hiv after stranger encounter?
« on: August 07, 2008, 09:06:42 AM »
Hi There, i am very unsure about whether i am at risk or not for hiv but here it goes, please understand i'm quite green and nieve so not really sure.
For the first time in my life last month I gave in to my bi-curious side and got chatting to a complete stranger online, anyway we met up, he picked me up and took me back to his house. I'm worried because.
1 He was a complete stranger, his profile said he had a boyfriend, he said he had been single for a week, he also said he had been assaulted on the scene a few months before.
2 We kissed a lot but his mouth etc seemed very clean.
3 We were naked and touched each others bodies all over etc, massaged each other and he brushed his member against my ass(no penetration though).
4 We took part in prolonged mutual masturbation touching each others members with our hans, i touched his and my own with same hand and he touched his and mine with his same hand, sio i'm worried about haviing his cum or pre-cum or other fluids on my member.
5 I put a condom on for oral but it went on wrong he took it off and put it back on correctly.
6 We soon gave up on oral.
I went to an sti clinic where they said minimal risk, health counsellor said always a risk, online says no risk, whilst several other hiv advice forums have laughed at me for being worried.?
 I'm so scared and stressed spend hours online and cannot sleep for worry, please help have i put myself at risk?

You were never at risk of contracting HIV in the situation you've provided.
