[Question #2262] Your expert advice please

46 months ago

I had an experience two days ago with a CSW and I'd just like some reassurance. First, we showered. Then, she laid a towel over an inflatable mattress and gave me a body rub. I'm not sure how clean either were before we started. Would that matter? We were both naked. At one point, her vagina would have rubbed across my penis during the soapy massage. The only other contact was masturbation and one moment of rimming (her to me). However, it was only very brief as I stopped her as she started. I did touch her anus at one point when we were in the 69 position, but did not insert a finger. Then, we moved out of the bathroom. In the bedroom, I fingered her. However, I washed my hand in hot water directly after that, and then returned to masturbate myself to orgasm - possibly with the same hand. There was no oral sex. There was no vaginal or anal penetration.


I'd just like to know that I could not have caught anything from the rubbing, fingering or being together in the shower. This might be a no-brainier, but I'd just like to ask for peace of mind.

Welcome to the Forum.  I'll be glad to comment .  I'll first congratulate you on your practice of safe sex.  None of the activities you describe are associated with any meaningful risk of STIs, including HIV.  Your massage, nude body rubbing, and mutual masturbation (including putting you finger on her retum and then touching your penis) are no risk events.  There is no reason for concern and no reason for testing related to the activities that you describe. 

You by way of editorial comment, I will also say that STIs are generally harder to get than many people think. Most people, including most CSWs, do not have STIs and even when a partner has an STI, most penetrative sex does not lead to infection.  

I hope my comments are helpful to you.  You are in the clear.  EWH
