HIV transmission by someone performing a handjob
Nov 25, 2002

is it possible to get infected by someone doing a "handjob" on your penis? Someone recently got "massaged" and they are worried that they may have been infected.

Response from Mr. Kull

HIV is known to be transmitted sexually during anal, vaginal and oral sex ONLY. While the risk of transmission during sexual contact with an HIV infected person is never absent, there is no evidence that HIV has ever been transmitted through receiving a massage or a handjob.
