Answer: 

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.

It sounds like you are concerned about your risk of HIV transmission after a masseuse visit.

Kissing and having your breasts sucked are both No Risk activities.

Receiving oral sex is considered a Negligible Risk. This means that it presents a potential for HIV transmission because it can involve the exchange of body fluids. However, there has never been a confirmed report. Here are some of the reasons why:

  • HIV needs a human host to survive. Once HIV is outside of the body and exposed to oxygen it can no longer transmit.

  • Saliva has an enzyme that inhibits the transmission of HIV.

On this forum, we focus on HIV risk assessment, for more information about Hepatitis C, I would encourage you to go to CATIE's wesbite.

Here at AIDS Vancouver we encourage everyone to make HIV testing a part of their regular health care maintenance routine. The only way to know your status is to be tested. If you feel that you would like a test, even after the information provided, you can ask for a test from your health care professional.

I would encourage you to check out the following resources about HIV:

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
