I am a gay male who met a guy and we engaged in anal sex with me as the bottom. He used a female condom on me which was a new experience for me. I guess I am looking for some insight as to the effectiveness of this as protection from HIV as well as other STI's. I am prone to HIV anxiety and go through so many what if's. Can anybody enlighten me on this please? My local sexual health clinic says it is safe but still have lingering thoughts on it all.
Thank you so much. I did something dumb though. After it was all said and done (he did not ejaculate in it during sex) I washed it off and experimented with practicing to put it in again. My curiosity got the best of me. Was this unsafe? This happened 4 days later. I feel foolish with this follow up question.
