SEX with a 50 Year old girl..Irrational fear or what? will make donation

May 17, 2009

Hello Doc.

You're the best. I`ll give my donation...To the point.

I'm 29, meet this 50 year old girl at a bar (don't know much about here health status HIV,STD`s) she claims to be fine. a week later we end up having vaginal sex at here home.nothing else. I used a latex condom, the plastic (condom)never broke. At this point I think I'm doing the right thing, but a week later I get this sore throat out of nothing... hmmm!

What`s my risk for this one time sex if we consider that I don't really know here status and that yes I did used condom and never broke and she`s 50 years old?

I don't have any cuts in my penis to permit vaginal fluids in to my system.

do I have to worry about this? do I need to get an HIV Test?


PS: I don't have sex anymore with young girls because in my mind I think they are more promiscuous. that's why now I focus on sexy 50 year old ladies thinking it will be more safe. guess what I still have fears.

Cheers J.C

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi J.C.,

If the latex condom was used properly and did not break, your HIV-acquisition risk would be essentially nonexistent. HIV cannot penetrate intact latex (or polyurethane), no matter if you're screwing a barely legal hooker or a great grandmother.

By the way, your assumption that it's less risky from an HIV standpoint to do the horizontal matters mambo with sexy 50-somethings than with younger women is totally erroneous. If you have a Mrs. Robinson fetish, fine. Just don't fool yourself she's any safer than the winner of the wet T-shirt contest at your local dance club. To stay safe continue to cover your stump before you hump no matter who you may be humping!
