HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?

Worried - like most people here

How easy is to contract the HIV Virus through

1. Mutual masterbation
2. Oral Sex (giving and recieving)
3. Rimming

The reason I ask is that I participated in these actions last night and am kind of worried.

Mutual masturbation carries a theoretical risk of transmission. If infected semen, vaginal fluids, or blood got directly into an actively bleeding cut on you then theoretically the virus could be transmitted. It is theory because in over 24 years the virus has never been documented as being transmitted this way.

Receiving oral sex also carries a theoretical risk. If the person performing had a mouthful of blood, then theoretically the virus could transmit. Basically speaking, if your penis wasn't coated with blood, you shouldn't be worried.

Performing oral sex is a risk, but an extremely low one. If there is no ejaculation in the mouth, the risk is even lower. In over 24 years, there have only been a handful of cases and most were when ejaculation took place. Good oral health on your part also reduces your risk greatly.

Rimming would only be a risk for HIV if there were large amounts of blood present in the other person's stool. This really isn't a risk factor for HIV.

Life is meant for living, not fearing.
