Last night I decided to meet up with a guy. We discussed HIV and he said that he practiced safe sex and was generally a top. He said that his last HIV test was 4 months ago, but that he was sexually active a month ago. We decided not to have penetrative sex before getting tested. However, we did the following:
1. We rubbed our penises together and masturbated;
2. He lay on top of me, placed his penis between my legs and rubbed it along the bottom of my scrotum and between my arse cheeks (no penetration);
3. I sat on top of him and he lightly rubbed his penis along my anus. This is what I am most worried about, as I am afraid that some pre-cum (which I saw on his penis later) may have rubbed of on my anus (which is quite sensitive). Again no penetration.
Should I be worried, and should I go for a 4th Gen test in 4 weeks?
Thank you very much for your post and welcome to our forum.
This sexual encounter, as described, would have not posed any risk of HIV infection to you. There was no unprotected penetration and therefore no risk of infection, even if the outside of your anus had come into contact with some precum. Therefore no need to get tested.
This has set my mind at ease! I could already feel the paranoia setting in and was beginning to imagine all the ways in which the virus may have entered the body through lesions along the anus (which I get frequently).
In any event, I am greatful for your speedy reply and can now move on with my work day.
I realised that I had forgotten to mention something in my earlier email. About two hours before the sexual activity, I had punctured my finger with a sharp pencil. Given that precum was on my finger (and possible some ejaculate later on) might that change your previous advice to me?
I realise that I am being pedantic, and I apologise for this.
