Recently i met a sexworker. I got message by her .I sucked her nipples 10-15 seconds. There was no secreation from her breast . It seems she had some sort of gel on her nipples. Latter when i was out from her place i had small cut on my tongue and i had some blood coming out . Is this a risk for HIV ?.

Hello and thank you for using AIDS Vancouver as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.
First of all, it is important to know that whether one is HIV + or - is not determined by their occupation, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. So, having protected sex with a sex workers is a low risk activity. Having unprotected anal/vaginal sex with anyone is high risk for HIV & STI transmission.
To transmit HIV, HIV+ bodily fluids have to directly enter the bloodstream through unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse, urethra in the penis, other mucosal membranes, points of needle injection or open cuts and sores (in theory through).
Nipple sucking does not pose any risk of HIV transmission as long as no secretions or blood coming out from nipples.
So there is no need to worry about your tongue bleeding since you have descried that there was no secretions.
It is also important to remember that saliva is not the bodily fluids that can pass the virus, and an enzyme in saliva actually inhibit the virus from entering the bloodstream.
We do recommend all the people who are sexually active to get tested for STIs, including HIV regularly to know your status, and protect yourself and your partners.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to call or email us.
Stay healthy and keep smiling.
