protected sex with bleeding and using oil based lubricant
      #276897 - 06/28/14 10:47 PM

Hi, I had protected sex with a sex worker who I noticed bled a little bit which was not noticeable until we finished. She was using an oil based lubricant. I was using an extra safe condom (thicker) and well known brand. Fearing the worst, I tested the condom for any tears by filling it with water but it didnt show any tears or water escaping. Am I at risk? help

Your not at risk, the condom stayed on ... intact ... no problem! I'm just going to throw something out there though for you to read and for others to chew on a bit. Everyone always has to note they "had sex with a sex worker" ... like it's some big OOOHHHH! Going forward just say you had sex and "your partner" (paid or not) have some concerns ...! You always try to enhance the situation by commenting on the "worker" aspect!

One final note though, "oil based" lubes ... use only water based! Oils can infact break down condoms, even thicker ones and can cause them to break! Keep oil for the massage, cooking or car .... never as a sexual lubricant!

anotherday ... in paradise!
daily ponder ... be the reason someone smiles today!
