Another Mutual Masturbation Question?

Sep 6, 2008

Dear Dr. Bob: Maybe I didn't type in the correct wording on this, so I only got an answer with HIV- people. My question is: I jerked off a guy yesterday of unknown status. I rinsed my hands off with water after and dried on towel; no soap was available. When I got home, I notice a hang nail on my thumb. Wasn't bleeding or red, just a hang nail, but it was sore to the touch and that is what has me concerned. I'm trying to remember the saying that I've read on here before, "If blood cannot get out, HIV cannot get in ... ". Would that apply to this senario? Should I be concerned? Thanks again. A donation is on it's way. Love, The Hang Nailer

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Hangnailer,

Mutual masturbation with HIV+, HIV- or unknown status studs is not considered an HIV risk, whether or not you have a hangnail. Relax Max! You're fine.
