Need help, how risk with frottage
« on: September 04, 2012, 04:02:43 AM »
Hi! Plz help to answer my concern below. I am a male, and  I did come to soapy massage parlour 2 days ago. She already do some frottage with me ( around some seconds, in soapy environment). That would be no penetration but i saw she had a tampon so i thought she was still having menstruation. I also had the protected penetration with her and of course with condom. I concern the blood on the vagina can come to my penis once she rub my body and my penis may dip a little bit in quick time ( around 1 to 2 seconds) that i could not aware . How risk is it in the case? thanks for your help.

You are worrying needlessly. HIV is a fragile virus. Even if it had been present in the situation you have described, it would not have remained viable in those conditions.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as condoms are used properly for those activities you will be well protected.

There's no need for further concern this time.

You don't have a reason to be worried this is the second forum that you have been on and advised you that you didn't have an exposure.

But you haven't been at risk. Yes, I understand that you may have briefly dipped the tip of your penis. This isn't something to worry about. Hiv is a difficult to transmit virus at the best of times when we're talking about the insertive partner. You're getting all worked up for no good reason.

You only need to test if it's part of a regular, routine sexual health check up. All sexually active adults should be doing this at least once a year. Think of it like going for a regular, routine dental check up. You may not have a toothache, but you go anyway.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

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 sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

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

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST SPECIFICALLY OVER FROTTAGE, 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. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!
