How well can the AIDS virus transmitt outside the body?

Jul 30, 2006

Hi I have a friend that is worried about the AIDS virus transmitting through outside of the body. He had told me that he went to a strip club and gotten a stripper's thong and when he went home that night he had masturbated with that thong and he is worried if he can get a AIDS virus through this act. I know I've heard that the virus does not live outside of the body that long but if the incident happened within an hour is there a chance?

Response from Dr. Horwath

There is no chance.
