blowjob from a prostitute

Aug 1, 2008

Hi doc, here's the situation. last week i got a blowjob from a prostitute for about five minutes or so and I forgot tu put Mr. Happy's hat on (too much booze i guess, so it's my stupidity). Anyway, there was no blood, Mr. Happy is as healthy as before the incident but still I'm quite concerned. What's my risk? by the way, let me tell you that the information found on this site has been quite reassuring :no stereotyping, no bigotry, no stupid advice, just professional help from concerned and caring people. You are doing a great job and you have a great sense of humour too. so, no condom, blowjob, prostitute. What should I do? again, congratulations, but most important, thanks!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Blowjobs carry only a very minimal risk for HIV acquisition, particularly for the insertive partner. This holds true whether the sucking partner is a closeted GOP congressman surreptitiously giving blowjobs in public restrooms or a high-priced hooker who could suck the chrome off a fender. If you are at all worried about HIV, get a single rapid HIV test at the three-month mark to put your residual fears permanently to rest. Just know that the odds are more than astronomically in your favor that you did not contract HIV from this blow-and-go-hoe, OK?
