Hi. I'm a little ashamed of this question. I'm a man and if I give or receive a hand job from another guy can I be infected with HIV?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Masturbation/handjobs are not considered a risk for HIV transmission. By the way, why are you ashamed of getting a little help from a handy friend? Guy-on-guy (or gal-on-gal) action is nothing to be ashamed of! Sexual orientation is a fact of life and not a lifestyle choice. The only shame should be placed on those who try to criminalize or stigmatize Mother Nature.
