DEAR DR. FRASCINO, I WAS IN THE SAUNA ROOM AT THE GYM. I SHOOK HANDS WITH AN OLD FRIEND THERE. I HAVE COME TO LEARN THAT HE WAS PREVIOUSLY MASTURBATING IN THE SAUNA ROOM. AM I AT RISK FOR HIV? IT WAS JUST A SIMPLE HANDSHAKE. THANK YOU.

A "handshake in the gym sauna" can be code for a furtive weenie-whack in many circles. But let's assume you really were just shaking your buddy's hand and he had previously been burping the nephew before you sauntered in with a tilt in your kilt. Your HIV-acquisition risk would be nonexistent. (In fact it would be nonexistent if you were shaking his Mr. Happy as well.)
