HIV is not transmitted from environmental surfaces. You did not have a risk.

The important thing is not about how or with what she handled the condom, but rather that you wore one for intercourse. That's all that really matters. They provide very effective protection. You were not at risk in this situation.

In my experience guys who have been with a professional not infrequently have anxiety and shame about that and imagine they are at greater risk than they would be with a civilian. It's not whom you are with that's the issue. It's whether you use a condom or not. Condoms are very democratic. Thy don't care who your partner is and they do a good job for everyone.

No risk, no need for testing.

Thanks for ur reply. Andy I m realy scared  now i remember
1] she wiped my pennis with same cloth before she placed condom on my pennis,she would have wiped  earlier customer also as she kept that cloth there agin after wiping me
2]  also she performed oral  i could feeel her teeth on my pennis i m afraid my condom may have broken , i  did not change the condom before i entered my pennis in her vegina ,

I m afraid as same cloth was used to wipe pennis of all customers without condom it could have hiv virus , also i she performed oral there may be some pores on condom throuhg which HIV virus
 could pass

i m really worried i m sorry i m bothering you again.

Plz reply soon

HEY! It wouldn't have mattered if the cloth was dripping with sperm from her previous customers. HIV is absolutely not transmitted in that manner. Nor would it have mattered that you felt her teeth on your penis. If the condom had broken you definitely would have known it because when a condom gives out, it's definitely not a subtle event. It ends up looking like fringe hanging from your organ.

You are worry absolutely needlessly. Really.
