Thank You so much for helping fellow individuals like myself. You don't know how much of a big change you are causing in other people's lives. My question is very simple and very short, please help me:
So I rubbed my penis with another man's penis ( No exchange of fluids, and I know this is a no risk activity ). Then I rubbed my penis with his arse and area above his hole ( MY PENIS HEAD DID NOT EVEN TOUCH HIS HOLE ). Is there ANY risk of HIV? Can there be HIV on his arse's skin? THERE WAS NO PENETRATION, WHATSOEVER. A week has passed and I see some rash on my chest and have a sore throat ( which are ARS symptoms! ) Do you recommend testing?
Thank You! You guys are my angels
I recently gave finger stimulation to a sex worker (who was on her period, which I found out after) about 5 minutes or so after I touched myself, and had a small bleeding wound on my penis. what are the chances of contraction hiv from this scenario. I thank you in advance for you help in this matter. :)
Hi, i went to a massage parlor and got a b2b massage, i was wearing a disposable underwear and she was completely naked.
At first a precum came out of me from being aroused and i could feel it cause it went through the disposable underwear and then She started rubbing her vagina on my penis ( i still had my disposable underwear on ) and the rubbing went on for about 30 seconds when i asked her to move away and masturbated until i came.
I then checked her vagina and didn't notice any vagina fluids coming from her but i am not sure if during the rubbing she did discharge any although when i touched the underwear after i asked her to move aside i felt no wetness on them.
Also please not that she was kissing me on my lips only no deep kissing and she tried to slide her tongue inside my mouth but i didn't interact with her and moved her away but her tongue did touch my lips.
Please note that 2 weeks ago i also had a massage with the same woman but that time she was wearing her underwear and i was naked and i noticed that she had the menstrual pad under her underwear not sure if she had her periods or not and i was rubbing my naked penis on her underwear and then she asked me to but my penis between her thighs and ejaculate which i did and i came between her thighs. In both incidents there has been no penetration or hand job or oral sex what so ever.
My question are:
1. In both incidents am i at risk of getting infected with hiv through these actions?
2. If the woman was hiv+ and her vagina fluids somehow came in contact with my disposable underwear does it pose a risk of hiv transmission? (Please note that the disposable underwear is not a thick fabric, and i have read on this site that if vaginal fluids come in contact with the penis opening it might be a risk of hiv transmission so i am worried that if any fluids from her vagina was present on the underwear it might have gone through the underwear and into my penis hole).
3. Is it true that once the virus is outside the host ( the woman vagina ) it dies cause it got in contact with the air?
4. And what about the kissing part where she tried to force her tongue in my mouth and i felt her tongue touching my teeth, does this oppose any risk?
I request you to please answer my query with as much detail as possible, please i have a wife and a kids and i am very worried. I promised my self never again to get into such an encounter where i put my self and family at risk.
Appreciating your kind help and apologize for some of the wards used but i wanted to be as specific as possible.
Thanking you in advance.
About the REUSING CONDOM post, i didn't reuse it literally, after i penetrating anally an HIV person, i grabbed the condom alongside my penis and masturbate, i didn't think there was a risk, later i realize the condom had rectal fluids. and my penis was cover all over it, that was my concern, if that contact was dangerous or not?
Im really grateful for your time and caring to all of us. Thank you.

My penis became in full contact during masturbation with the external side of an anally used condom of an HIV+ person, After the anal coitus, the condom was exposed briefly to the air (less than 10 seconds), before i started to masturbate with it, i kept masturbating and came with the condom around my penis (uncircumsided), without thinking in the risk. can you tell me how real of a risk it was?
Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of contracting HIV from a used condom, assuming the condom was used by someone who is HIV positive. Condoms are not intended for reuse, and will not be as effective in preventing HIV transmission when used incorrectly. 
Recommendation: Refer to your physician for follow-up

Thank you very much for reading my question,
I am currently living with serving in military and I am writing this from South Korea, I came here because I visited your website for several times
and I believe your helpline is the most reliable sources I have ever seen. ( I am sorry for the bad English)
My question is
If a couple drops of blood (one or two drops ) ( HIV positive blood) was dropped to my hand and if I did not notice them
and "after 1 or 2 minutes", I rubbed my eyes "with the hand with HIV positive blood on it" and "directly went to sleep."
In this cases, is there any chances of getting HIV?
I did check several statistic before I came here, it was saying the possibility of getting HIV from blood entering eyes is around 0.1%
but in my cases,
"I directly went to sleep ( closed my eyes for a long time, so I guess there is no air exposure during the sleeping time) "
and it was nighttime, there was no light sources including the light bulb because the switch was turned off (No UV light to destroy HIV viruses )
and the window was closed so I am afraid if there is not enough oxygen to destroy the virus
I am really worried because I rubbed my eyes and directly went to sleep, and I am worried if I did not notice the blood on the hand.
I understand the scenario is nearly impossible, but I am worried because I have never read a case or a statistic regarding rubbing eyes with HIV infected blood and directly went to sleep.
I know threre must be no blood at the time, but I am still thinking about the possibility of getting it from this situation, so I really do need your help
Thank you so much for reading such a long question and I wish you to have a great day, thank you.
Hi i received the oral sex ( BLOWJOB ) for 2/3 minutes from sexworker TWO WEEKS BACK . i am not sure about her HIV status now i am worried about HIV can u plz tell me what are the risks ...
how much time HIV virus is active outside the human body , do HIV transmitted through saliva , if sex worker is HIV positive still can i get HIV pl tell as i worried and have too much anxiety regarding the same
I am male and my nipples were bitten & sucked by a female sex worker and got injured, there was no significant bleeding or deep cut, only very small (1*2 mm) and superficial injury to the surface of the skin in the nipple. I can feel pain & burn if I apply alcohol on the wound. There was no any other sex like vaginal anal or oral sex with the sex worker, absolutely no.
I worry about the possible transmission of HIV or STI, my family doctor recommended that I should take PEP to ensure the safety. But I just doubt if I need PEP in such a situation?
It has been 36 hours past since this accident, I need to make decision as earlier as possible if I decide to take PEP.
Please help to advise!
