So long as the action end of your one-eyed monster stayed dressed in his latex suit, you should have no worries about HIV transmission resulting from the condom slipping halfway up. HIV cannot pass through intact skin. It is possible, however, for HIV to be absorbed by mucous membranes, like those found inside the urethra, anus, and vagina. Since your urethral opening remained protected and assuming the skin on your penis was intact, HIV should not have had a potential point of entry. That leaves your potential HIV exposure to unprotected oral sex, which carries a very low HIV risk. You can read all about that in the archives, OK?
What are your chances? I'd say your chance of not contracting HIV from this single episode is excellent.
Hope that helps. Good luck.
