hi

I was at strip club last week and the stripper used her saliva to lubricate my penis even though the saliva content was too low since I didn't feel too much saliva I'm worried if this would cause HIV or STD . Also I had fingered her and I had hangnail but no blood visible from the hangnail. It would be nice if you could tell me what I have to do? Should I be worried?? I don't feel tired or I didn't get any fever so far.

Hi there, thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline with your HIV related questions and concerned.

I understand you're worried about the risk associated with your experience. Hopefully this will be able to answer your question.

In regards to the saliva on your penis, I'll refer to it as receiving oral sex, that would be considered Negligible Risk. This means that although you could technically make a case, there has never been a single report of it occurring.

In regards to the fingering, that would be considered Negligible Risk as well. The hangnail wouldn't affect this since an injury would have to provide direct access to the blood stream, which means it needs to be large enough to require medical attention such as stitches.

Although your risk for this situation is negligible, here at AIDS Vancouver we recommend that everyone who is sexually active make HIV testing a regular part of their routine both for their health and peace of mind.

For more information on transmission, I have attached the transmission equation below. Note that all three components have to be present in order for a risk to be associated:

HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
Also, check out [smartsexresource.com](smartsexresource.com) for more information about safe sex and protection from other STI's other than HIV.

Hopefully this was able to answer your question!

Sincerely,

Christina
