Scared to Death :(
« on: September 21, 2012, 05:09:52 AM »
Below is my Risk:

>I'm male In massage parlour,while im masturbating(cuming) girl took my penis and rubbed hard(no penetration) against vagina for 5-10 seconds.Her vagina is too wet and due to this incident,im scared to death.

From your previous posts,i came to know that frottage is safe.But my point of worrying is when i'm in process of frottage,im'm ejaculating.

Could any one of you assess my risk due to this?Should i go-ahead and take test after 12 weeks or forgot this and move on ?

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug abusers
Mother to child

You did not have an exposure.

Even if you DID have a risk - you did NOT have a risk - your tests are conclusive. You do not have hiv. The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks. You would have tested positive by now if you were indeed positive.

It doesn't matter if you cum or not. Cumming does not increase your risk regardless of what activity in which you are participating. The only time male ejaculation is going to make a difference to you is if a man cums in your ass (and/or vagina, for a woman). Seriously. That's the ONLY time cumming is a concern.

You don't have hiv and you were never at risk during your massage. Get on with your life.

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
