Risks of BRIEF encounter?? (less than a minute of exposure)
      #264127 - 06/26/12 05:52 AM

Hi. Last night I had an encounter whereby I was briefly anally penetrated unprotected by a man I did not know. The encounter lasted maximum a minute before I came to my senses and stopped it. It was in a public cruising ground, so when working out my risk I can only assume he was HIV+. Obviously I plan on getting tested as soon as possible. However I would just like to know if my risks were lessened by the fact that he was only inside me for a few seconds, only really thrusting once, and did not cum inside. This is the first (and last) time I have been penetrated without protection. Thank you in advance!

First off assume everyone is HIV + not just people who visit "cruising grounds" also the idea that HIV+ individuals are all out to infect as many as possible should be reserved for vampires and zombies. Yes you have a few bad apples as with any batch but the greater majority wish to not infect anyone else no matter the cost to us.

Now on to your risk. It was a big one. Whether there was a lot of thrusting with ejaculation or a sec or two with none. Precum holds a large quantity of HIV in it. Sometimes greater than cum itself. There is no way to know if he precumed or not. There's no way to tell if you tore or not. (micro tears happen and you don't feel them). You best bet is to test in 6 weeks which will be a very good indicator of what your three month test will say. You can test now but if it turns out positive you were infected before this encounter. You may also want to seek counciling to figure out why you purposely put yourself in a bad situation with this self destructive behavior. Otherwise you can swear it will never happen again till you're blue in the face and it will mean nothing cause you will do it again.

Good luck.

Where did you read that precum holds a larger quantity of HIV than semen?

http://www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SafeSex/Q155277.html

Dr. Bob said that it has not be "scientifically proven" whether or not precum can transmit HIV, but it has been proven to contain HIV. Nobody really knows for sure.

I'm sorry did I say that specifically? No. I did say it can contain more virus than cum. Also Precum can hold trace amounts of cum/sperm. Just because they can't say one way or another doesn't mean that Precum can be taken off the list of possible transmission. The argument is sound that if it can contain more virus then it is possible to become infected by it especially within an enclosed cavity such as the anus where it can stay active for a while. Plus if you had bothered to read the article you are quoting even dr bob thinks testing after anal exposure to precum is warranted. So please if you want to correct something I say get your facts in order first otherwise keep it to yourself.
