HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Fingering/Broken Skin (for Jackie & others)
      04/15/04 12:50 AM

I have read in some previous posts that there has never been a documented case of HIV transmission via fingering. I'm wondering what is the source of that information.

I'm trying to stay calm...but I has an encounter at a gay bathhouse that involved, shall I say, "rough and deep fingering." I know that the man was HIV+ because he later expressed his desire to bareback. When I refused, he told me his status.

I'm one of those people that always seems to have raw cuticles or hangnails. Sure enough, I had a slight break in the skin on one of my fingers. It was not bleeding...but it was deep pink and raw. I had been sitting in the jacuzzi for a while, so any small scab had fallen away.

SO...sorry to be so long and graphic...but what do you think about that type of exposure?
