Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. We are happy to help answer your questions.

It sounds like you are not sure about the risk associated with some of the activities you have engaged in, with a commercial sex worker.

To begin, we want to let you know that we use the activity, and not the people involved, to find out if an individual may be at risk of acquiring HIV or not. So, engaging with a commercial sex worker, does not necessarily increase the risk of acquiring HIV from fingering, receiving oral sex, and sucking breasts.

Physical contact outside of the body (e.g. sucking breasts in the dark) poses no risk for acquiring HIV.

Fingering and receiving oral sex are considered negligible-risk activities for acquiring HIV since, there has never been a confirmed report of HIV being acquired through these activities either (risk is only hypothetical):

* HIV cannot be passed on after bodily fluids have been exposed to the air (e.g. on fingers/body)

* A substance (enzyme) in saliva (spit) breaks down the virus and helps stop HIV transmission from happening

* the urethra (in the penis) does not provide direct access to the bloodstream when it is not contained inside the body (e.g. inside anus or vagina)


So, based on the information we have received it sounds extremely unlikely for you to acquire HIV from these activities. For future reference, you may click [here](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart) for our Risk Chart and/or [here](www.smartsexresource.com) for additional information about how STIs, including HIV, are usually acquired. Discussing the information you have received with a local healthcare professional is also a great way to learn more about how to decrease your risk of acquiring STIs, and HIV.


We trust we have answered your questions and encourage you to contact us again in the future.

Sincerely,

Marta
