Dear doctors and writers,
Last night I had a "stupid night" I am still regretting.
This was the first time I had sex with a man, and I didn't find it enjoyable at all.

I want to a male sauna and had sex with two guys, giving them passive blowjobs and then (with one of them) anal sex with condom, in this case outside of the pool, in a private room.

When we finished having sex (it lasted few minutes) the boy didn't even ejaculated and we went back to the swimming pool.
I have to say that, after the anal sex I saw on the towel a tiny tiny tiny quantity of blood (or maybe was just mucus, light was very low).

Once we were back in the water, we talked for 5 minutes (still under water) and then the second guy invited me to sit on his legs. While I was seated on this laps, his penis was touching my anus a couple of times.

I also suffer of little hemorroids, I have "two little balls" hanging out since probably 10 years but I never cured them since they never game me any problem/hitch/pain.

Can my anus situation improve the chances of getting infected?
Left for granted that I will take the test in the next weeks, how likely is that the second guy's precum could have infected me?
Does precum get diluited in water? The pool also was chlorinated, does it help?

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

having protected sex (sex with a condom) is considered to be a low risk activity for acquiring HIV. It is considered low risk instead of no or negligible risk because sometimes condoms are used improperly or break. If the condom was used properly and did not break the risk of acquiring HIV from the situation you described would be low.

HIV in bodily fluids (such as semen, precum, or blood) is exposed to the air it becomes non-transmissible. This would be the same when exposed to water containing chlorine (quite a harsh chemical that kills lots of things!). Sitting on your partners` lap with possible presence of precum and an open wound or sore would not put you at risk of HIV. The total risk of HIV from the sexual encounter you described would be low.


For more information about HIV you can always visit the AIDS Vancouver website or CATIE.ca.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.
