Mutual Masturbation Question

Sep 13, 2009

Dr Frascino,

I have searched the forums time and time again but I have never found an exact match to my question. I really need to put my mind a rest. Thanks for the great advice on the site, I'm looking into donating.

After a mutual masturbation session, if I use another guy's semen as lubricant (I know it's stupid, and I won't be doing it again) to masturbate myself am I at any risk of any STD such as HIV etc. (I am male)

I know him but not his sexual history. I've been really worried about this. Could you please put my mind at rest? Should I get tested for anything? Is there any risk of infection? I know you've answered similar questios before but I've never found an exact match to this question.


Response from Dr. Frascino


Actually I have answered this question before, but I'll address it again for you. Generally speaking mutual masturbation is not considered to be a significant risk for HIV transmission/acquisition. I agree using your buddy's spunk as lubricant is not a wise move. There is at least a slight theoretical risk you could push fresh HIV-tainted baby batter into your urethra (pee hole) while burping the nephew. The chance of this really happening and causing an HIV infection is remote, but the theoretical risk remains. I would advise an HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark to put your fears permanently to rest.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
