HIV transmission through touching buttocks of masseuse
Oct 28, 2012

I need your advise regarding an incident that happened with me. Yesterday I had been to a massage parlour where the massuse gave me a hand job while I touched her buttocks. After I ejaculated, I took shower. There was no penetration involved.

I am a little concerned as I touched my penis while taking shower. Am I at risk of contracting HIV or STD?

Please help me with this query as I am unable to focus on my work and I can't face my wife as well.

Hello- this forum is to help people make difficult decisions about how to manage the sometimes difficult questions about starting or taking HIV medications.

With only rare exceptions, we don't answer the "do I have HIV?" questions on this forum. You could consider posting your question to the Forum on Safe Sex and HIV Prevention
