Prostitution Risk? What is it?
      09/05/00 10:46 PM

Over the past few years, I have occasionally seen prostitutes. A dumb thing, I know, but as an obsessive compulsive person, sometimes I can't help myself with what is a slightly addictive behavior. I have gone to therapy to try and help with my OCD, but I also am what I am.

My encounters have always been safe - I've always worn a condom, and have only seen more "expensive" call girls.

Here's my question: I have searched and searched, and although I've seen all the data with regard to the risk of a male getting HIV from a women with unprotected intercourse as the only risk factor (incredibly low) and protected sex (nearly zero), I still have moments of worry that I'm HIV pos. Not as worried as some people on the board (surprising I know since I'm OCD), but worried enough that I keep the encounters to a minimum. FYI - since seeing these prostitutes, I haven't gotten tested.

Now I've searched and searched the Web, and I have not found one single documented case of a man getting HIV from a female prostitute in the US - protected or not! Is there really a risk here? Does anyone have any documented evidence of a man getting HIV from a female prostitute in the US?

I also want to add that the fear that the media has instilled in people regarding HIV is in itself a crime. I see people hear wasting months of their lives worrying about HIV from what is obviously the lowest risk encounter (no contact) that it makes me mad. Everything in life is a risk. I don't spend my days worried about a car jumping the sidewalk and killing me, yet the risk of this is so much higher than what people are worried about with HIV. It pisses me off...
