Hello, and thank you for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It sounds like you are concerned about the likelihood of acquiring STIs from the described scenario.

From what you have told me, a commercial sex worker performed oral sex on you with your underwear still on for the sexual activity. STIs are generally spread through contact with infected body fluids such as blood, vaginal fluids, or semen. They also can be spread through contact with infected skin such as sores in the mouth. If your bare penis does not enter a vagina, rectum or mouth there is generally little to no STI risk. Furthermore, as you still had your underwear on there is only a small, theoretical risk for the transmission of skin-to-skin STIs such as herpes.

If you are concerned about acquiring an STI and still want to engage in similar sexual activities it might be best for you to use a condom as they are a great way to prevent STIs.
