Would this be high risk?
« on: November 03, 2011, 04:46:23 PM »

I'll try to keep this simple as I use my phone for internet. Im gay and met with a guy, but i didn't expect to have playtime, oh well. Not sure his status, so I'll assume positive by default.
 We kissed even though I had a partially healed cut on my lip and it bled alittle while making out. The kissing was so intense his cocktail was on my breath afterward.
Got naked and did the usual rolling around, kissing, touching, tongue action, wet humping (he could pre a lot). Concluded with mutual masturbation. On this one I need to go more in depth. So, I gave him a hand job and he shot all over me. Some, landed in my eye, which stung like crazy. I also had a stinging sensation on my lower abs. We got real aggressive. Not sure if it was sweat, saliva, pre cum or cum but something hit an area of broken skin. The area became a bit infected and I'm treating it with ointment.

Is there a risk here? The skin infection is gone but still seems that if it was cum on broken skin then I'm not in a good place. my eye worries me too (wore contacts if that matters). Id appreciate it if the moderators could give me a risk assessment.

Absolutely no risk for HIV. None whatsoever. 
"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Yes, I have read all of the details. You were not at risk.

You need to know that the ONLY confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected anal (and vaginal) intercourse. That's it. And as long as you consistently use condoms for those activities you will be well protected. It's just that simple.

Thank you for your words. In my home country we are not made aware of HIV in such ways. I went to cdc website and they said cum in broken skin was high risk and could get medication. Maybe I read this wrong. I'm studying in America so my English is not perfect. Do I need some medicine or test? I don't want to risk my host family health.

Thanks for the risk assessment and support. I could not get back home. It would be difficult to even test.

OK. Well the good thing is there is no need for testing. Get on with your life. Always using condoms.
