Dear doctors,
Recently i met a sexworker. I got message by her with talc. She gave a gentle jerk by her hand softly just by moving the skin over my penis and also she poured oil over penis. I ejaculated.
She was wearing clothes from top to bottom.I only took out her breast (by hand) and that was just for one minute.
I did not have any sorts of penetration, mouth sucking, oral nor did I touch her vaginal fluids or area. Nor did she. Nor did I except to receive a hand job from her. After I ejaculated, she brought in fresh tissue paper and wiped it off. Also i sucked her nipple for 4-5 seconds.I don't know whether there was any secreation from her breast. But when i was pressing it in my hand, there nothing was coming out.
This was my first and the last time doing this with any sex worker. Please help me out.
Should i go for testing? Am I safe?

Hi there and thank-you for using the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your resource for HIV/AIDS related information.
For a risk of HIV infection to exist, specific HIV+ fluids (such as blood, semen, vaginal/rectal fluids, injection with shared needles), must come into direct contact with the blood stream of an HIV- person.
Additionally HIV is a very weak virus and does not live once exposed to air. The experience you describe with a sex worker has absolutely no risk as it does not meet the criteria as described above
A person (in this case a sex worker) touching your penis, touching and licking her nipple, and your ejaculation are all no risk activities and therefore do not require testing.
That being said, we highly recommend periodic testing for all sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV, for anyone who is sexually active because it will give you definitive knowledge as to your status and testing is really the only way to know for sure. I am not sure where you are located however, if you contact the centre for disease control in your area, a local hospital or your doctor, they should be able to provide you with information on where you can be tested and the type of testing available.
In addition, having encounters with sex workers or erotic massage parlour workers do not necessary mean that she is more likely to have HIV or pass HIV to you.
In fact, many sex workers are more aware of their status and get tested for STIs regularly to protect themselves and their clients. Activities (rather than people) are high risk. The two primary ways HIV is passed from person to person is through unprotected (vaginal or anal) sex or sharing needles.
I also wanted you to know that I am not a doctor, but I am part of a team of volunteers highly trained to deal with questions and concerns such as yours. I trust I have addressed your concerns, however if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again.
Stay safe and healthy!
