7 months ago
Dear Doctor, 

Received hand job(rough) in massage parlor It was very dark and because of wearing mask most was not visible in dark.. i am feared that masseuse might have BLOOD on her finger/hands and if it touched /RUBBED  uthera or inside foreskin during massage . Will it be hiv risk? I am uncircumcised..

You've had three previous threads in which you asked about obviously zero risk events in regard to HIV -- hand-genital contact, nonsexual blood exposure, etc. This is in the same category. This was a no risk event. IF she had HIV (probably she didn't), IF there was wet blood on her fingers, and IF she RUBBED blood into your urethra, you could have caught HIV. But of course the chance those things all happened is zero.

I have previously commented on your possible germophobia and the probably need for professional counseling. Concerns like these are not normal. Finally, your last thread included the following statement, which still holds. 

Please note the forum does not permit repeated questions on the same topic or exposure. This will have to be your last one; future new questions about HIV exposures other than sex or injection drug use will receive no reply and the posting fee will not be refunded. This policy is based on compassion, not criticism, and is designed to reduce temptations to keep paying for questions with obvious answers. In addition, experience shows that continued answers tend to prolong users' anxieties rather than reducing them. Finally, such questions have little educational value for other users, one of the forum's main purposes. Thanks for your understanding.

There will be no further discussion, and future questions along these lines will simply be deleted, without even this much reply.
