[Question #7028] HIV risk from direct contact of red slapped skin on penis with blood

8 months ago
Hi,

I was with a girl, we were both fully naked during the foreplay.
The girl slapped and spanked me on the penis, my skin on penis was red color from slapping, 
but still the skin on penis was not broken and was not bleeding.
Afterwards she peformed on me unprotected handjob and unprotected blowjob on my slapped red penis.

My questions are:

What is the HIV risk from these contacts of red slapped penis with possible blood?

The fact that the slapped skin on penis has changed its color and became red, 
does the change of the slapped penis skin color to red  increases HIV risk when coming direct contact 
with possible blood from girl's hands or mouth during the unprotected handjob and unprotected  blowjob?

Again as I have mentioned, the slapped skin on penis has changed its color to red from spanking and slapping, 
but the skin on penis was not bleeding and was not broken.

What concerns me is that maybe the change of the color of the slapped penis's skin to red 
might provide easier access for HIV to bloodstram when coming direct contact  
with blood during unprotected handjob and unprotected blowjob?

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to our Forum and thanks for your question.  I'll be glad to comment.  The events you describe did not put you at risk for HIV.  There are no proven cases in which HIV has been acquired from receipt of oral sex or from receipt of masturbation.  The slapping you describe may have increase the blood flow to the skin of the penis but that would not have increased your risk for infection.  This is true even if your partner had untreated HIV and had blood or genital secretions on her hands.

I see no reason for concern and no reason for testing.  I hope that this comment is helpful to you.  EWH

Hi Edward,

I have read your answer, thank you for that.

Just to get better understanding of HIV transmission : 

What you meant is that the slapping on penis has caused an increased blood flow to the skin of the penis,
and this is what caused the skin to change its color to red after slapping.

Even if the skin of penis becomes red from slapping, it does not mean an an increased HIV risk when coming direct 
contact with blood/vaginal fluid during unprotected handjob or unprotected blowjob, 
this is correct as long as my skin on penis remains not broken and not bleeding.

For red slapped skin on penis or skin of buttock (If we think of BDSM) to pose an increased HIV risk when coming 
direct contact with blood or vaginal fluid(unprotected handjob or unprotected blowjob) 
it must be also broken skin and actively bleeding.

Red slapped skin alone on penis or buttock which are not broken and not bleeding, 
do not increase HIV risk and do not allow access for HIV to bloodstream,
when coming direct contact with blood/vaginal fluid during unprotected handjob or unprotected blowjob or other casual contact during foreplay.

I would appreciate if you can confirm that the conclusions I wrote are correct or not, 
so that I can get better understanding for future events.

Thank you again.

Your summary is correct.  To expand a bit, HIV is not transmitted through intact skin.  It is also not effectively transmitted ofrom person to person by transfer of infectious material on a person’s hands.  Finally, as I told you as well, there are no proven cases in which HIV has been transmitted through receipt of oral sex. The event you describe were no risk events for several reasons  EWH---
