Takalani’s (29) Question: Dr Dick, I recently had protected sex with a top who penetrated my ass with Clere glycerine oil as lube. He used a latex condom. It wasn’t vigorous penetration and I ensured that his condom was not leaking/broken after he ejaculated. What are the chances that I may be at risk of infection? My concern was the type of condom used (Choice) and the lube (Clere glycerine).

Dr Dick’s response: It is not recommended that you use condoms with an oil-based lubricant as this can lead to the condom tearing or bursting. Instead, use water based lubrication with condoms. In this case, if the condom was intact and there were no leaks or breakages then your risk of contracting HIV is slim to none. HIV is only spread once bodily fluids are exchanged from one person to the other. Whether it is through blood, semen or vaginal fluids. If no ejaculation was passed on to you from your partner to you then there is nothing to worry about.
