Risk from rimming

Jan 20, 2012

I asked a question regarding tongue to Ana contact with an exposed fissure being present in my anus. A Csw put her tongue in my anus fora minute then I received unprotected oral from her. Is Testing warranted here? I am freaking out horribly. My neck has been hurting me it may be swollen glands. The exposure was 7 days ago. Please help.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Unless blood was pouring out of her mouth, I would not be concerned. Rimming is a low-risk activity. It is even lower risk for the person who is the receiving partner.

Bottom line: Don't worry!

In health,
