Grinding of Penises: Risky?

Aug 2, 2014

Dear Dr. Wohl,

I found your site very informative.I would like to ask though with regards to my situation. I had an encounter with a total stranger whose HIV status is unknown.What started out was just fondling of each other then somehow an open mouth kissing which did not last for more than 5 minutes. I don't think that I have any visible mouth sores or this person at all.After sometime, we bacame naked, he moved on top of me while kissing my ears and nipples. At this point, its unavoidable that our penises have touched each other because of our bodies touching each other and due to his grinding movement. It was not intentional and we are both circumcised. There was NO deliberate insertion of my penis into his foreskin and vice versa.My worries are accounted on the fact that is is possible that his penis touched the tip of my penis while he was on top and kind of humping over me and he might have some sort of precum though I am not sure as it happened fast.I did not see any liquid dropping in my penis. This action did not lead to ejaculation at all because I asked him that we stop and rather do handjobs so he did handjobs on me first and then I did handjobs on him which both lead to ejaculations.The semen only touched our hands. We did NOT have any oral or anal sex at all.What are my risks if his penis accidentally touched my urethra just in case? Any risk from that kissing and handjobs?.Am I worrying needlessly and do I need to be tested. Thanks
