Playing safely with someone who contracted Hepatitis C?

    I am bi and mostly like guys, and my 1 long time friend who I knew for a good 13 years now, he is mostly straight and I am mostly the only guy he fooled around with all these years.

    He is a macho type of guy that no one would ever think would mess around, etc. Over the years, he likes to bottom, I am the top, I like to blow and rim him before I fucked him, we like to jerk our dicks both together in 1 hand etc.

    Recently, in the past 5 months, him and his girlfriend experimented with meth, and started shooting it, and accidentally contracted Hepatitis C together. He became violently sick 5 days later and was diagnosed at the hospital.

    I had not seen him in several months, sometimes even a year here or there, over the past 13-14 years, even though we lived in the same town. Now he just moved in with me this past week, it's probably been 1-2 years since we played together, maybe less, and now he is worried and overly cautious for my sake and does not want me to get it.

    So I just would like some expert advice here on how to keep me safe, on what we can do with, and without a condom, and I will let him read this then so he feels better and more comfortable.

    It is only transmitted by blood and semen, correct? He was sweating the other day and I was wiping him down and figured that was safe.

    I know NOT to share straws when doing powder, and I guess me rimming him is out as well, as both are ways to contract Hep, correct?

    Can I still blow him before he cums, or is pre-cum not safe and that is not recommended as well? Or should he now wear a condom if I am going to blow him? Can we still jerk our dicks together in 1 hand? I know I accidentally got his sperm on me the other night and I washed it off immediately with antibacterial soap.

    Do I need to wear a condom while fucking him, even though I know I am clean?

    From what the CDC says, the transmission through sex is low, but still possible.

    If you two are still going to have sex just be safe. They don't put too much attention on semen, but do say it is possible to transmit through it.

    Hepatitis C is nasty though. I would play the safest card of all, and not mess around with him anymore.

    Hey mate,

    I personally, would choose not to sleep with him because of his prior risky behaviour, but if you must, make sure that you are 110% protected.

    I've always gotten confused as to which Hepatitis is which, since I know one is blood and semen, and the other is through faeces. Just if you must, be smart and protect yourself.

    Cheers,

    Sean

    Sleeping with someone who's hep c positive and knows it is safer than sleeping with someone who is positive and doesn't. You've probably already slept with someone with hep c and didn't know it.

    Turning someone down for disease status is irrational and in humane. Condoms fix everything.

    Uhm, no they don't. Condoms are not 100% fool proof

    Wrong. Condoms fix some things, reduce risk with others, and do little in other cases. Not all STIs come through the tip of a dick, and from semen.

    Condoms ... fix everything? icon_eek.gif

    Oy! I can ignore your ignorant replies to posts related to things like mass extinction, but I cannot let this one go.

    No, son, condoms do not fix everything. I'm prepared to argue this with you until you're cowering in a corner, so bring it on if you must.

    I know. It was more of a jab at some other comments made here.

    Any time an individual has a transmitable disease, there is a risk of contraction. Always.

    OK, good. Just so long as no one misunderstood your jab, and thought that was a valid statement.

    I'd go with him and get tested. Don't risk that. Lots more people in the sea to play with,I'm just saying!
