"Hello everyone! I have posted here in the past in regards to oral sex, but I actually had a few more questions I would like answers to. I am currently not "sexually active" - in the sense that I haven't had anal intercourse in 5 months, and for my own mental health, probably will not until I am tested with a new partner. I have however, since my negative hiv results I'm February, participated in oral/mutual masturbation acts with 3 different partners.
1) received/gave oral sex to and from another male, no protection, ejaculation took place both ways. 2) received oral from a different male twice. 3) mutual masturbation - with the presence of small cuts on my fingers (that probably came in contact with another male's semen) and I have also anally stimulated him with my fingers.
Situation 3 has been giving me the most level of anxiety as he has recently (about a month ago) been the insertive partner in anal intercourse since his last test. I am mostly concerned with this individual because of this fact. Can I continue my current sex behaviors and not be worried about Hiv in particular? Under what circumstances is semen on hands/anal fingering a risk? Can I be sure (as close to 100% as science can get) that I did not put myself at risk for HIV?
Thanks in advance."
- I was replied with simply 'you had no risk'.. Which is fine, I am just wondering if someone could ask me why? And of course, any further elaboration would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.
Okay, thank you. And sorry to be a pest, but I have one more question: If I am not having oral, anal or vaginal inter course, can I still place myself at risk sexually?
And hiv cannot access the bloodstream via semen in contact with superficial cuts on the skin?
