Hi, I met a sex worker yesterday and she sucked on my nipples for about 10 mins. No any sex. I did not even let her touch my penis. I went back home and just worried about if there was a risk for HIV should there be a very small cut on my nipple which I can't see and the girl had bleeding gums, or my nipple broken in a very small open by the girl during she licking my nipples, then her saliva mixed with possible blood may enter into my blood stream? Is there any risk by this way? I put some alchohol on my nipples after I went back home and felt a little burn there. So I just worried. Many thanks for your help!

Hi and thanks for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver.

I understand you're a little anxious, but the activity you described would not pose any risk of acquiring HIV.

HIV requires direct access to the bloodstream and the skin on the nipple would have prevented that direct access to your bloodstream. In addition, you cannot get HIV after it's been exposed to air. And saliva also has an enzyme that helps protect us from HIV. So in all likelihood there would be no risk of acquiring HIV this way (even if on your nipples you had minor, superficial wounds too small to be seen).

That said, I do want to note that your use of alcohol on your nipples would not have been a good way to reduce your risk if one had existed. As I noted above, HIV is no longer transmissible after it has been exposed to air.

I hope this has been helpful.

In health,

Matt, AIDS Vancouver Volunteer
