shaved pubic area before sex
« on: October 04, 2006, 11:33:44 PM »
last saturday night i ordered a las vegas escort. But right before she came over I shaved my pubic area. I did not notice any bleeding that night, but the next morning i noticed i had razor burn. She only performed oral(with condom) on me but could her saliva or other fluids infect me with HIV. If she rubed her body against the exposed area could this transmit aids?

Saliva is not infectious. In fact, it contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that inhibit hiv and render it unable to infect a new host.

As Mike mentions, please read through the Welcome Thread and follow the Transmission Lesson link. Here's what else you need to know:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

Use condoms for intercourse and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Condoms are a girl's best friend

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Thanks for the quick response Ann,
but i  never had anal or vagainal sex with the girl only oral but with a condom on. My concern is that before maybe an half to an hour before she came over i shaved my genital area and the next morning i noticed razor burn. Since saliva is ruled out as a transmitter could there be anyother way that i could get hiv? She wore a thong the entire time and i didnt not finger her or perform oral sex on her the only thing that happened is that she performed oral on me but with a condom on. Just worried that since the shaved pubic area that had the razor burn

Manh, you are worrying needlessly. No matter what spin you put on this incident with details about nicks, bruises, cuts, sores, etc., doesn't change that it was not a risky incident for HIV.

As has been suggested, read the lessons on Transmission and Testing to which you can find the link in the Welcome thread at the top of this section.

There's never been a case of HIV transmission via getting a blowjob and you aren't going to make history by becoming the first.

Just make sure you always use a latex condom for intercourse and you will be "covered" as far as HIV is concerned.
