+F -M 1st time with a partner since HIV+
      #100233 - 06/22/04 02:25 AM

Just wondering if it is safe to shower with my boyfriend. We use condoms for oral, vaginal & anal sex. I'm just wondering if it is safe to shower together (i.e. for me to have touched my vagina/genitals and then wash his penis, anus area). I'm just worried about slight amount of my vaginal fluids from infecing him in this way. We like to share this type of intimacy so I'm hoping we can do this without worry

Yeah. You can shower. It's just tempting then to have unprotected be careful. Remmber that HIV dies within seconds on exposure to air. So if you touch yourself and then him don't worry. Intercourse is what is dangerous cause this activity creates small abrasions inside the vagina and also on the penis and your fluids could enter him this way. Outside of intercourse--anal or vaginal--there have not been many other kinds of sexual transmissions!
