[Question #5579] STD risks?
21 months ago
This is a weird one, sorry for being graphic.
1. Received a blow job from a woman, with saran plastic wrap on my penis [both of us did not have a condom. She insisted this is safe for both parties, I wasnt thinking too much].
I'm thinking plastic wrap doesnt count.
So unprotected receptive oral sex?
2. She started me off with a hand job, no condom on me, no wrap either
3. Fingered the lady without any condom or such on my hand - insertive sex?
4. She was sucking on my nipples and me on hers.
What are my risks here?, what do I need to get tested for and when?
Or is this 0 risk altogether, sum total and I pass this off as a non event for any STD and do no tests and forget this altogether?
Would this cause any risk to any person I have sex with?

Welcome back to the forum. Thank you for your continuing confidence in our services. However, at least some of your concerns were addrssed, directly or indirectly, in your previous threads a couple of years ago, so my replies are succinct. The main points are that unprotected vaginal or anal sex are the main STD risks. Oral sex is low risk for all STDs (and zero risk for some), even without barrier protection. And fingering, kissing, or skin to skin contact are essentially zero risk except for vigorous genital-genital contact.
1) Plastic wrap counts as full protection. In fact, some condoms are made of polyurethane, same as plastic wrap. And as I said, even without protection, I would not recommend STD testing after a single episode of recieving oral sex.
2,3) No STD is transmitted by hand-genital contact or fingering, or at least so rarely that these events can and should be ignored.
4) There is no risk from oral contact with non-genital skin, including breasts and nipples.
So indeed, this was a zero risk event and I recommend you not have any testing, and that you continue your normal sexual practices with your regular partner. That's what I would do if somehoe I were in your situation.
I hope these comments are helpful. Let me know if anything isn't clear.
