*Time sensitive* Pre-cum almost inside the anus
« on: January 10, 2019, 07:44:39 pm »
Hello everyone!

First, I would like to clarify that I have read several of the previous posts about the very low (or non-existent) risk of contamination through pre-cum, but in any of those cases the contact between the penis with pre-cum and the anus was not as immediate and direct as in my situation, so I felt I could ask you this question. So here is my story.

I went today on a tantric massage session, and for a couple of times the masseur put the head of his hard penis on the external part of my anus. I touched his penis sometimes during the session and I noticed he had some pre-cum on the top of it. While his penis was on the "surface" of my anus, he gently forced his penis against my anus, making his penis enter, I would say, a couple of millimeters inside me. This makes me think some risk of infection exist, because the factor "sperm going outside one's body before entering on the other person's body" was not present in this case, hence the virus could still be alive.

He used lube and fingered me several times during the session. He also licked my anus. Things got hot in the end and I eventually licked his penis, but he didn't put his penis on the surface of my anus after the BJ.

I don't have any sexually related disease. I asked him at the end of the session if I should be worried and he got a bit offended, but he said he is not infected with HIV (which makes me even more anxious, considering that he is not on PrEP or on treatment in the case he is infected). Another complication to the story is that I had shaved my pubic hair, including the part that surrounds the anus, just before the massage session - even if I can see no visible cuts in the region nor feel any kind of pain, I feel that after using shaving machines makes my skin feels more sensible.

Please, can you clarify if I should go directly to a health center to take PEP? Since I am in XXX, all the treatment is covered by the national health system. If the risk is low but real, I would prefer to take the medication. But if you say to me that I am being paranoid and that the "theoretical risk" is just theoretical even in this case, then I would prefer not to go through all the side-effects and bureaucracy involved.

Thank you for answering me as soon as possible, since the window to start treatment is going to close shortly.

Look rubbing and pushing hard against or directly against your anus is no HIV risk regardless of the fluid, neither is fingering, him licking your anus etc.

The virus is very fragile, and your mouth lacks without damage lacks the route (cells) for HIV to infect, on top of this saliva has dozens of protein and enzymes that damage the virus and render it unable to infect.

Its such a near negligible HIV concern that we don't recommend stressing or testing over a giving a BJ.

The only brief risk you had for acquiring HIV mentioned is this brief unprotected intercourse (unprotected dipping incident)

Although i would not panic based on what you posted, it is a risk meeting in theory all the conditions required. So testing would be advisable at least for peace of mind and to confirm your fine. Guidelines are to test at 6 weeks past any incident and then at 13 weeks to confirm the result with an approved antibodies test.

As for PEP,  well it's fully up to you at the end of the day to decide to take PEP for this incident. Do note that if you are considering PEP you should start taking this as soon as possible after exposure starting no later than 48-72 hours post exposure.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

More information on HIV Basics, PEP, TaSP and Transmission can be found through the links in my signature to our POZ pages, this includes information on HIV Testing

Kind regards

Jim
