was given a spanking and may have had some contact

Dec 19, 2001

during an s&m session, i was spanked with a cane... this didn't cause any bleeding, but there were sores left over. during the spanking, his penis may have brushed this sore area though going nowhere near my anus. he didn't ejaculate, so basically, i'm wondering if precum touching a sore could result in transmission. thanks for your time and advice.

Response from Mr. Kull

Transmission is unlikely if there was no bleeding involved and there was minimal fluid contact with your skin. Transmission through infected fluid contact with skin is only likely if the fluid is coming into contact with fresh, deep cuts or wounds. Just to be safe, it is wise to avoid having semen, vaginal fluids, or blood come into contact with skin that is recently traumatized (bitten, cut, pierced, burned, whipped, etc.).
