Alex, you are worrying needlessly about HIV from your recent experience. The bed previously used could have been dripping with body fluids from other customers and it still would not have been a risk for HIV. HIV is a fragile virus. Even subtle changes in the body in temperature and ph and moisture levels quickly render it non-infectious.

In terms of sexual risk for HIV transmission it is very simple. The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as condoms are consistently used everytime for those activities you will be well protected.

You have no cause for concern about HIV in relation to your recent experience. Get on with your life.
