    @rodeo14 ah okay! My misunderstanding.
    Doesn’t necessarily need to be your last time visiting a sex worker either if you want to go back!

    I hope it all goes well for you and you can get more info face-to-face with whoever tests you

    Happy Monday @rodeo14!

    Like @nurse_nettie said, the risk of getting an STI from receiving oral sex is low. You should be okay, just get a check to be absolutely sure. 🙂

    I totally get the anxieties being magnified as it was your first time (congratulations, by the way!) but I do want to remind you that sex is super fun and super pleasurable! It…[Read more]

    Hey @rodeo14
    That’s okay! It’s a good trick for next time.

    Totally! Along the lines of caution here, some workers are actually extremely regimented when it comes to their health and safety. Many workers are very strict with condoms and get tested every few months so that they keep their body in tip top shape for their work.

    No problem, @rodeo14

    @rodeo14 changing condoms part way through sex is safe! Lots of people do it if their engaging in anal + vaginal sex to not carry infections or bacteria between sites. As long as you were protected throughout, you should be okay. But like @nurse_nettie said, you can get an STI test in a couple of weeks to make sure.

    @rodeo14 and @sextronaut, if your not sure if the condom broke or not, having an STI test will give peace of mind. Be reassurred that the risk of STIs from receiving oral sex is lower than giving oral sex. That’s because saliva is the only body fluid a person is exposed to (like kissing). The best time to have an STI test would be 2 weeks after it…[Read more]

    Hey @rodeo14, great question! Sounds like you were taking all the necessary precautions, nice work!

    @nurse_nettie will be able to point you in the right direction if you’re at risk 🙂
