Am I at Risk?
« on: January 04, 2012, 06:15:10 AM »
Hi, I am 30 years old straight male had sex with escort/prostitute girl in Sydney from 1 week, she gave me oral sex at first without using a condom and it took place for about 20 minutes, after then we had sex encounter, a vaginal sex and this time she used condom, but I am not sure if it was used in the proper way!
I was on top, ejaculated and waited for 3 minutes until I pulled out from her.
After ejaculation I noticed a liquid or maybe semen on the base of the condom and it was not fully covering my penis as it was slipped by 25% from the base.
I am afraid that what happened is because the condom was broke, but I noticed that semen was inside the top part of it, but didn't know how comes the semen/liquid comes out from the base of the condom!
I am concerned to know what risk I put myself in! and is having oral also risky?
I am also afraid that she did not use the condom in the proper way.
Please help to put me into ease as it is consuming more and more from my thinking for over than a week now.
Thanks in advance for your help and support.

At no time were you at risk of contracting HIV. Oral sex is not a risk of HIV transmission and condom protected sex is not a risk of contracting HIV. As long as the head of your penis was covered you had no risk.

For future reference, the important thing in using a condom is for the head of your penis to be covered during intercourse. Some slippage of the condom doesn't matter as long as the head remains covered.

You are worrying needlessly about HIV.

Thanks a lot Andy for your add, I was afraid that because it was slipped from the base it might not working properly, and for the liquid also on my base, however it is now clear to me.
You are so wonderful guys, again Thank all of you for your help.
