Please Help Me find peace of mind

Mar 31, 2013

2 weeks ago I picked up a sex worker she performed oral sex on me with a condom. She took off the condom and spit on her hand and continued to give me a handjob. What is the risk for HIV or a STD? I am sleeping a lot and my body is sore. Please help me

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi We know that oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV infection and with protection added in the risk reduces even more so. The spitting on her hand and masturbating you does not pose a risk either as HIV is not transmitted through saliva.

From this experience your HIV risk is extremely low.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Two questions for the price of one....
thanks everybody
