[Question #4010] CSW and protected oral

32 months ago
hey doctors:

i went to a massage and before i knew it she had placed a condom on my penis and gave me oral which included her licking my scrotum for 20-30 seconds?

do either of these acts put me at risk for ANY std/sti?

i have had HSV1 in my past.

thanks

Welcome to the Forum. Thanks for your question and congratulations on your practice of safe sex.  None of the activities that you describe place you at risk for any STI.  By way of back ground, most commercial sex workers do not have STIs and even when they do, oral infections are relatively uncommon and are not efficiently transmitted to recipients of oral sex.  In your case, the use of a condom reduces your very low risk encounter to a no risk encounter.  further, since you already have HSV-1, you cannot get it again. There is no need for concern and no need for testing. You are in the clear

I hope this response is helpful to you.  EWH

thank you. 

my concern was syphilis.  on the area under the condom protected area if her mouth got there or on the scrotum where she licked?  is that a concern?

also i did suck her nipples for some time — i assume she was not lactating so no concern there either?

thanks

No risk for syphilis either.  If she were lactating and you ingests some of her breast milk, there would be no risk for acquisition of HIV or any other STI either.  You are in the clear.  Really.  EWH
