    Spread of HSV2 or other STD's Through Oral Sex
    mike4292 posted:
    I recently made the unfortunate mistake of hiring an escort for the night and as a result I'm a little bit nervous about the possibility of contracting an STI in the process. The only sexual contact that was made was orally, which happened in a unique case that I can't seem to find a duplicate of anywhere online.

    I had been drinking that night, so I was having trouble obtaining an erection. The girl put a condom on my penis and started performing oral sex on me, but I had had one too many and could not get an erection. Frustrated, she took the condom off and started performing oral again, this time unprotected. This went on for about 30 seconds before I gave up and asked to end the session.

    Essentially, there was only roughly 30 seconds of unprotected intimate contact during the session, during which time I did not have any sort of an erection (I'm not sure if this makes a difference, I just am trying to provide as much detail as possible.) The escort did not have any visible sores on her mouth, or any symptoms for that matter, but regardless I'm still a bit nervous. I plan on getting tested for everything I possibly can as soon as possible, but just wanted to (potentially) put my mind at ease for meantime. I was just wondering what STDs I could possibly have contracted during the session, and the likelihood of the contraction. And please, for other's curiosity in the future, does not having an erection decrease the chances of contracting any STDs?

    Thank you for your time reading this post, your responses are much appreciated!

    Your greatest exposure is HSV 1 genitally from this encounter but I would think that it would be low. Ereaction or not you can still get an STI but from this encounter it would seem to be very low.

    Why not wait for 3 months and then get tested with a type specfic IgG blood test for HSV 1 & 2 to know what your status is.
    I would like to say that I am not a medical professional.
