    Is it possible to get HIV from a guy ejaculating on my face - possibly getting some semen in my eye?

    Is its very likely to happen or not really?

    Umm, when you get HIV/AIDS, it invades your entire body, not just HIV of the eye, hand or left foot. Get yourself tested and stop having sex with or pissing off HIV/AIDS positive people. They'll spit in your face. That is was happened right?

    I guess the likelihood would be comparatively remote, but yes, the eye has a permeable membrane.

    If it gets in your eye, you aren't opening your mouth wide enough.

    You need to protect yourself.

    Next time you want to have sex...put a nice tight plastic bag ever your head.

    You do NOT have HIV.

    Get tested to relax and learn the facts.

    And I am serious about that plastic bag. Nice and tight. Rubber bands around the neck to secure it.

    It's possible. It's why many first responders wear protective eyewear, in case they get splashed with blood and other bodily fluids. It's not just HIV, but other pathogens, as well. The eye is a permeable membrane.

    When I was single I kinda liked getting a facial when I blew or jerked a guy off, but I protected my eyes, by closing them and looking away. I think that should still be done.

    There is a high-risk factor for contracting HIV through the eye's mucous membranes via contact with semen (rough play?) or blood (a rough fight?) from an HIV+ individual who is not on HIV-suppression drug therapies.

    In contrast the risk is negligible from exposure to saliva, as active HIV is not found in extremely low amounts in saliva.

    I would recommend going on a PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylactic) if you're situation involves the first scenario.

    Seriously blue? They couldn't find anyone with AIDS to pee in her eye, so they just raped her to death... and then peed in her eye. It wasn't AIDS, God...

    There seems to be contradicting views on this. Although there is possibility:



    The eyes – often considered an “open wound” – are not ALWAYS considered as a path of infection. But truth be told, there are people (albeit still considerably small when compared to others infected through other means), usually from the healthcare industry, who have been infected with HIV due to splashes of blood in the eye, e.g. in 1988, an intensive care nurse had her hands, eyes and mouth heavily splashed with the blood of an asymptomatic HIV positive hemophiliac, eventually testing HIV positive (as reported by the European Journal of Epidemiology, Vol. 4 No. 1).


    Largely, nonetheless, “the risk of HIV infection in this way is extremely small,” since, “for infection to occur, exposure must be in large quantities.”

    The concept also applies to genital fluids, e.g. semen, on the eye.




    Assuming the OP is not a troll ( and I am assuming she IS) - get tested and and know the facts.

    The risk is very minimal. You're fine.

    I believe the question should be: "Can I contract HIV/AIDS via the eye" ... and the answer is YES. Any open area which has access to blood flow is a potential opening for sexually transmitted diseases.

    CDC saidScientists estimate that the risk of infection from a needle-stick is less than 1 percent, a figure based on the findings of several studies of health care workers who received punctures from HIV-contaminated needles or were otherwise exposed to HIV-contaminated blood.


    So consider the likelihood of you getting HIV from semen in your eye (OMG it burns!)

    Actually considering how much it fucks your eye almost anything probably gets washed out.

    So to answer your question: No you can't claim to your open-relationship boyfriend that you got HIV because a guy gunked you in the eye. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and herpes you can get in the eye though. Neisseria gonorrheae is one of the few bacteria capable of penetrating the protective layers of the eye, causing inner-eye infection.

    Also: "possibly getting some semen in my eye?" If it was in there you would have bloody noticed. And you would have cursed him to hell.

    Is is it possible is the worst question to ask when you are talking about a communicable disease.

    It's possible you could contract the first case of airborne HIV.

    The question is how likely is it. The answer in both cases appears to be extremely small, to the point that most resonable people should not be concerned.

    However, if you go out and seek HIV+ men to cum in your eye, well that does up the chances! icon_rolleyes.gif

    The chance is very small. Your cornea is avascular (in a healthy individual) so that is probably pretty safe for a splash on the surface. The sclera is another story, but if it happens and you wash out the eye, and have no current infection or abrasion in/on the eye, you should be fine.

    you should talk to your doctor who will assess the risk factor based on several variables (e.g. any trauma to your eye, amount of semen, possibility of HIV transmission, etc.).

    it may be very unlikely that any transmission has occurred. your doctor will may recommend treatment for instance your eye was cut open, there is some existing wound, lesion, or infection (e.g. conjunctivitis).

    Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is only given within 72hrs of initial exposure.

    Final note: don't take medical advice from a bunch of strangers on a message board! when in doubt, see a doctor!

    I mean, I'm talking about when I was younger, not an old fart like I am today.

    You never liked getting a facial from a guy? I thought it was great, and I don't know how many guys said to me, after my face was dripping with his cum:

    "You've got this 'Cat that ate the canary grin'".

    I dunno if that phrase predates you, but it meant I was pleased with myself, that I had blown him to perfection, and the evidence was dripping all over my face, and tricking down my throat.

    But I reiterate, be careful of your eyes. No good studies on this, but a cum shot into your eye may be unwise.
