Received blow job/deep kiss/small cut on face
« on: November 08, 2019, 03:29:48 pm »
hello, Iím a male and two weeks ago I met another guy. He sucked my penis a few times, and he deep kissed me a few times and then told me he was hiv positive. My question is what if his blood was mixed in with his saliva and entered my mouth or got on my penis head when he was sucking my penis. I tend to bite my cheeks and my gums tend to bleed sometimes after brushing. I had brushed my teeth about an hour before this event. Also when I got home about an hour after this event I noticed a small hair size cut on my chin, maybe from the guys beard or perhaps his teeth when he was kissing me, it wasnít bleeding but it did start to bleed when I squeezed it after getting home, was there any danger there? He also sucked my nipple and left a hicky around it, was there any danger there? In recap: 1) any danger with deep kissing, assuming there was exchange of blood 2) any danger in receiving a blow job (did not cum) 3.) scratch on chin from his beard or teeth 4.) him sucking my nipple and leaving a hicky.    Weíve known each other a while and heís been positive for over ten years and is undetectable. Thank you for your time and help. Much appreciated.

Hiya,

Jack, you have already correctly been told on the other forum by its members that you had no risk. So be reassured as I read all the replies and answers, also excuse me if I skip therefore some of the Q&A and be slightly blunt in my reply.

Scratches, look if you got into a knife fight with someone and ended up bleeding half to death directly into each other knife wounds instead of getting urgent medical care, I would say it's a theoretical risk maybe. Scratches, bumps, cuts and day to day "boo-boos" simply are not concerns.

Getting your penis sucked lacks all the conditions required for acquiring HIV,  thus it makes sense that after nearly 40 years of this pandemic in terms of BJ's there hasnít been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked") and you will not be the worlds first.

Saliva is hostile towards HIV as it corrodes the receptors needed to infect you, your "what if's" don't change this. Reading between the two forums I am guessing the only reason you are stressing is that he told you his status, him being positive does not change how HIV is or is not transmitted.

Equally, him sucking your nipple lacks all the conditions for HIV transmission, except to him if you had happened to be a women breastfeeding and he was an infant.   ;)

heís been positive for over ten years and is undetectable

See and here is the trigger I suspect of your fear, but knowing this as said does not change how HIV is or is not transmitted, it's just irrational fear.

If he was undetectable BTW then it was no HIV risk anyway even if you had, told me condomless intercourse happened the risk would be zero! See a person living with HIV (PLHIV), who is on Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) and has achieved an undetectable viral load* in their blood for at least 6 months, can not sexually transmit HIV.

This is also known as Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U)
(*undetectable viral load defined as less than 200 copies/milliliter)
References; https://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=71864.0

So unless you have been engaging in other sexual activities not mentioned here, with someone else, move on with your life and simply test yearly out of routine, in addition, talk to your health care provider about taking PrEP, PrEP is taking a pill daily as an additional layer against HIV bit it might also give you peace of mind for the future.

Best, Jim

P.S

I am not connected with the other forum at all, but I feel you should go back to them, thank them and then move on with your life
