    Hi, guys, my new post here. I just used an escort for the first time. We kissed but we used a condom for intercourse. After that, I became anxious and worried of the diseases that can be transmitted via saliva eg. EBV, HPV, Hep B. So I asked the escort I met with but she refuses to disclose to me whether she is 'clean' or has any disease. I think that she is clean but I need an assurance. She became offended by my question, which I think is a completely legitimate question for anyone who has had sexual relations.

    What is the legality in this matter under Australian Law? I know people have to disclose when they have HIV, etc., but it doesn't say about other diseases. I will get blood tests anyway to be certain, but can she be at fault by any means for not declaring her health status?

    P.S. I told her my health status and that I am clean, according to the best of my knowledge.

    This should have been discussed between the two of you prior to intercourse - if you then were not happy with her level of disclosure - then you could have just walked away.

    Agree with JS. Not discussing it before the transaction means it is likely you accepted the risk.
