According to our main site article ( STI Risk Assessment: The Cliff's Notes ), you are at risk of HIV as well as other (and much more common) infections. Time to get in for screenings/treatment for yourself, and until your partner(s) are willing as well, use condoms/dental dams for ALL activities with STI risks.

If you're holding his negative STI results in your hands, I can't imagine why you're concerned about getting HIV in the first place. [Smile]

It all comes down to what level of risk is acceptable to you. You can choose to trust your partner, but like millions of others who HAVE trusted their partners and have contracted an infection due dishonesty or non-disclosure of sexual history, that's not free of risk.

Alternately, you can choose to make a date of getting tested OR insist on using latex barriers until you do have the results.
