My girlfriend is positive and I am negative
Feb 23, 2000

I fell in love with a women that is + about 10 months ago. I am 20 years older and have a family from a previous marriage. I am super cautions about unsafe sex, perhaps too much. We love each other very much and I have been reluctant to have intercourse even with a condom. There is so much mixed information about risk. What is the risk of having sex with a condom each time? Is it less risk with spermididal? What is the risk of oral sex with or without a condom? Is there any risk to me if I manually stimulate her with my fingers? Do I have any risk at all kissing her? There is very little support services where we live so answering these questions is important.
