[Question #3662] Does my exposure warrant any testing for any STI ?

34 months ago
Dear dr Hook , Hansfield and Terry
I had two experiences 

Exp :1 
1. French Kissed a  woman (Unknown STI status and not in contact) for 1 -1.5 minutes maximum. I dont know if she has any blood in her mouth of any sort .... But i do have a mild gingivitis. IE : I mildly bleed a little bit if i go and floss my teeth and gums .  Otherwise I do not bleed on any normal day. 
2. Received a hand job with some massage oil where she massaged my open penis  for 4-5 minutes until I ejaculated.
3. Mutually Sucked and licked nipples of each other for 3-5 minutes.
4. Fingered her for 20-30 seconds and masturbated subsequently (dont remember time gap) after a while with same hand and ejaculated.


After 4-5 days I had a very itchy penis shaft and itchy thighs after coming home from work .(thighs had rash) and penis shaft was okay but itchy(didn't find anything scary). I had  pretty exhaustive day that day and my underwear wasn't fresh.I thought bad underwear was the reason. I washed the area with warm water regularly , gave lot of ventilation to my groin area , and used anti bacterial soap (Dial soap and Dettol ) found in the market  regularly and in two days everything was cleared and is completely healed with no itch .

Exp 2 : yesterday

I have a mild impacted wisdom tooth which started paining a bit. (It pains once in every 4-5 months , no plan of surgery anytime soon as per doctor  advice. No visible blood , just discomfort and soreness at the end of the gum because a tooth is trying to come out but is in collision course with another molar) 

1. Tongue kissed a masseuse woman  for 2-4 seconds
2. Got an  initial hand job  for few seconds without ejaculating.
3. Mutually Sucked and licked nipples of each other for a minute or two.
4. Fingered her for 5-10 seconds and masturbated myself with same hand and ejaculated.

Please advice . Do I need testing for any STI of any sort for the above exposure ? (not just HIV ) . I know this sounds a bit exaggerated but this is the  detailed list of activities.

 Welcome to our forum. I'll be glad to answer your questions. Each of these encounters you describe or entirely safe. Neither HIV nor STI & AIDS are transmitted at all  through French kissing even when saliva is exchanged and even if blood in one or another person's mouth.  Similarly, receiving masturbation or  masturbating another person is also a no risk event.   Even when genital secretions get onto your hands or body there is no risk for acquisition of HIV or other STIs. There is no reason for concern from the encounters you describe and no need for testing at all.  While many people have worried about is sort of exposures and have been tested as a result, there has never been a documented infection with HIV or STI infection of any sort acquired through the sorts of the events which you describe.

I hope this information is helpful to you.  EWH

Thank you Dr Hook . I will take  your lines to heart and try not to fret. I would like to point out I still have a pain at my impacted tooth site .I am going to a dentist tomorrow to get it checked and I am on an antibiotic for that. I dont have any other noticeable symptoms. I want to educate myself further on safe sexual practices and any resources you provide  be helpful. 
In particular I want to know completely about the risks involved in  activities such as  Handjob  ,Sucking Breasts  ,Blowjob  etc. I understand the absolute importance of good health and I never want to mess up that with my actions .

There is no risk for any STI, including HIV from receipt of masturbation or sucking a partner's breast, even if that person is infected.  Similarly, no one has EVER acquired HIV from receipt of oral sex (a "blow job").  On the other hand, occasionally when exposed to a person with throat infection, receipt of oral sex can lead to gonorrhea or non-gonococcal urethritis.  (NGU).  EWH
