I thought I would have learned from my last scare a few months ago, but I guess not. Three months a go, I licked a guys scrotum and , I did not catch an std. I had hoped to make that my last incident. Last week, I met a guy and also licked his scrotum and pubic area. I did not insert his penis in my mouth ever. I did not see any sores for herpes or a syphilis rash and I asked him if he had any std's three times, and he replied he did not. I do not engage in anything risky like anal or inserting his penis in my mouth and it is not frequent. Maybe 2 or 3 times in a year, so I do not think I am wreckless, but I get so scared after and have panic attacks. I am afraid to engage in anything else. I feel that the scrotum is a safe bet.
is gonorhea a concern just from licking his scrotum? I would think you catch that from the semen from his penis?
Is there a place to councel me on controlling this behavior? I want to stop.
Thanks Vance for your prompt reply. It is very much appreciated. You certainly help put many people, myself included at ease.
I still have some moments where I get worried because my anxiety makes me think my tongue is itchy and I spend most of the day looking at my tongue for something to happen. Eventually, I think my tongue feels itchy and I think I see something on the side of my tongue. I had two prior scares and had frequent panic attacks that ultimately passed and lead to nothing.
I assume that licking a scrotum is less risky than actually giving a blowjob to someone? Is that correct?
Thanks Vance. It's likely just my anxiety at work making me think my tongue feels itchy and I cannot say that there is anything that resembles an std on the side of my tongue. I never really looked at my tongue and it may be normal for all I know.
I know it must be frustrating sometimes dealing with someone's irrational fear and anxiety, so thanks again. You're work here is really appreciated!
sorry to bother you. That thing on the side of my tongue i stressing me out. It is not clearly defined and I cannot really describe it and likely is nothing. I can't help but worry that it could be a syphilis chancre.
It started just three days after my contact and today is the seventh day. That seems way to soon. Also, I worry that maybe he had a chancre sore on his scrotum and maybe I didnt see it? Based on the pictures I have seen on the internet, i dont see how I could have missed a sore if he had one and the thing I have doesnt really look like a chancre but maybe it is still forming? Sorry dude, I am losing it. I know many people have told me this is a low to no risk act that I did by licking his scrotum and that syphilis is uncommon and all.
