|Nwe one: HIV in female ejaculate?
Jul 25, 2005
First, this site, and you specifically are the greatest. Where do I donate?
My question, I believe, is a new one (I searched the archives). Is the HIV concentration in female ejaculate known? I had extremely amazing sex with a multi-orgasmic female who ejaculated profusely. It was way hot! However the ejaculate went into my eyes and other places I did not want it to go (it pretty much went everywhere). I did use condoms when I was in her vagina and anus. I know I need to be tested at 3 months but am wondering what my risk level is given the exposure was to the ejaculate. Is the concentration more like urine (low) or vaginal secretions (high) or is that even known? Thanks!!!

From my understanding, there is still some disagreement whether or not female ejaculation exists. I do not know of any studies that have attempted to quantitate HIV viral load in these fluids. It's hard enough to find gals who gush, let alone gals who gush who are HIV positive and willing to "gush for science" so that we could measure viral concentrations. Female ejaculation may be the result of fluid released from Skene's glands, which are somewhat similar to the prostate gland in guys. The fluid from Skene's glands is similar to the chemical composition of prostatic fluid, which makes up a significant portion of male ejaculate. For women, it is also possible some urine may leak out during sex from pressure on the bladder.
Certainly it's reasonable to assume ejaculatory fluids may contain HIV. Considering your red hot mamma gushed profusely everywhere, including your eyes, whether the HIV concentration is high or low, a three-month test is warranted.
Good luck on your HIV test
