Unprotected Oral After Drinking Hot Beverage
« on: August 16, 2013, 06:19:17 PM »
I gave a dude a blow job who is HIV+.  A day or so afterwards, my mouth was sore and I remembered drinking something hot like coffee or soup... can't remember which.  The truth is I don't know if I drank it before or after the blow job. At any rate, if I drank it before and my mouth and tongue were sore from drinking it very hot, what are the chances of infection by HIV?  I don't recall any bleeding or anything; just remember my tongue and mouth being sore after drinking it.  I guess I panicked because I don't remember at which point my mouth got sore before or after giving him the blowjob?  Thanks, guys, for your help.  You have an awesome website.

The situation you have described leads me to believe you have not put yourself at risk for HIV, unless of course you had a gaping wound in your tongue, then you might have something to worry about, but that wasn't the case so I don;t think you need to worry about HIV.

You are more at risk of contracting an STI through oral sex than HIV. Someone else (one of the regular experts) will come in and explain things to you in more detail, but until then here is something to think about regarding STI's

Chlamydia  can take a few weeks to a few months, but symptoms can often emerge after 1-3 weeks if infected, Gonorrhoea  on the other hand can take anything from 2 to10 days, Syphilis, a few days to 20 days, and last but not least Genital or Oral Viral Herpes, this can take a few days to about 3 weeks.

If you are going to continue to be sexually active, having regular testing is a way of taking responsibilities for your own health, and that of others.

Never knock on deaths door..ring the bell and run..he really hates that.

I know I have a limited amount of responses (like 3), and I definitely respect that but would any of the others comment please and give your opinion?  Thanks, a lot, guys.

As a moderator of this forum I wholeheartedly concur with Moderator Jeff's assessment.

Please trust me, we few people who are allowed to give risk assessment on this forum are  in agreement on the risks for HIV transmission. We confer, you know, behind the scenes and bring one another up to speed.

If you see one reply here and none other (except to bolster a reply or add references) then you can rest assured that your concern has been noted and quite adequately addressed.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

I'm in total agreement with Jan and JK. You didn't have a risk.

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 FOR HIV SPECIFICALLY OVER ORAL, 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!

Condoms are a girl's best friend
