HIV from getting nipple sucked?

Hi guys, thank you for this excellent forum!

I stupidly went to a massage parlor for a massage this morning. I ended up massaging the lady, and she gave me a handjob. I decided to wear a condom, while she gave me the handjob. During the handjob she touched my scrotum and she licked my left nipple briefly, she could have sucked it for maybe 3 seconds. I felt the salivia on my nipple but did not see any blood. I did not have any visible cuts on my nipple, as I rubbed alcohol based hand sanitizer on my nipple afterwards and it did not burn. I am correct my assuming then I did not have any cuts on my nipple?

Long story short, do I need PEP after this incident? What is my HIV risk? It is only 12 hours since the exposure thus I am still in time for PEP.

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected anal or vaginal sex, or
2) sharing intravenous needles.

Nothing else you can think of, including the events you mentioned, would put you at risk for HIV.  You don't need testing and you absolutely don't need PEP.

Thank you for your swift response I appreciate it.

Are you absolutely sure of these 3 facts that are risks? I would rather take 28 days worth of PEP than get HIV...
No one has ever contracted HIV from any of the activities you engaged in.  Never.  Not once in 40+ years.  Taking PEP is not risk-free, and is 100% unnecessary.
Thanks again for your follow up answer I really appreciate it!
