Strip Club HIV Worries
« on: August 20, 2010, 05:11:36 PM »
I know it seems like you all are just beating a dead horse with this question, but I just have to get this off of my chest.  I went to a strip club quite some time ago and got  lap dance from a dancer.  To my amazement, she unbuttoned my fly and took out my penis, and she then performed a handjob with a couple drops of her saliva.  Nothing else went on during that dance. This was about 1 year and a half ago.  Well, I didn't even think about that episode until my wife said she was pregnant with our second child back in April, then I started to remember the episode and started freakin out.  She of course had an HIV test done at 8 weeks pregnant, then another one as art of her VISA application to come to the U.S. when she ws 3 months pregnant and was Neg. both times.  Now since we just moved back to the U.S. she has to do it all over again at her new OB.  I really don't think it will be positve, but my mind is just running the what if game.  I myself am getting ready to deploy and the HIV test is part of it, so all I can think about it what if.  I did level with my wife when she went in for routine prenatal blood tests, but she just laughed and could't believe I was worrying about something so minor.  All I can think about is what if she had blood in her saliva (which is reaching I know), and if her hand was cut (again, reaching).  I just want to kno fr an expert side if I was at risk from the event. Thank you...

You didn't do anything that put you at risk of contracting HIV.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. Everything else is only theoretically risky. And there was nothing even remotely risky about your incident.

Impending fatherhood can be exciting and also anxiety provoking. You have no cause for further concern about your incident.

Thank you both for the replies; they have helped.  I just have to forget about the episode and move on, thanks again!
