Hi sir,

I went to a prostitute on 9th July 2016 at a brothel where a condom is enforced. So I used a condom throughout the whole oral and vaginal sex. There was no anal sex involved. However, I kissed her through mouth to mouth and she gave me a handjob after everything without a condom. I did not touch any part of her body afterwards as I was not with a condom. I did not ejaculate throughout the whole activity as well. But I am still having an anxiety over getting a HIV by any chance. So may I know my chances of getting a HIV whether it is high risk or low and when I can start testing for HIV? Looking forward to your reply.

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 an interaction at a brothel.


Vaginal sex with a condom is considered a Low Risk activity. This means that it presents a potential for HIV transmission because it involves an exchange of body fluids. There have been a few reports of infection attributed to these activities (usually under certain identifiable conditions).


The other activities that you have described (kissing, handjob, etc) carry No - Negligible Risk.


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.


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

  • Smart Sex Resource


  • Risk Assessment Chart


  • HIV Basics



  • Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
