[Question #5040] Risk

24 months ago
I'm in HK and got an escort.  We were showering and she cleaned between my butt cheeks with a hand held shower after she cleaned her vaginal area.  I know notice some scratch marks and some marks maybe scabbing.  It hurts a bit where the marks/scratches are.  Is there any risks with HIV?  I think not as she was washing me with the water running even if she did scratch me hard enough for me to bleed.  she said she was clean.

Welcome back to the Forum.  I happened to be on the Forum at the time your question arrived and so you are getting a more rapid reply than is typical.  I also note that this question has several similarities to your questions two months ago when I told you that most commercial sex workers do not have HIV and that contamination of cuts, scratches and scrapes does not constitute a risk for HIV.  If the scratches had been deep enough to draw blood there would still be no risk to the events that you describe.  I would not worry and see no reason for HIV testing related to the scratches you mention.  EWH---

Thank you for the quick reply.  My only concern was that it was close to the anus in th event I was bleeding
