Can dried semen be infected
Aug 1, 2011
After masturbation in for example a shower if not washed out properly and some semen is left in the bath and someone else uses it can they be affected and likewise can you affect other people if you drop a bit of semen or pre-cum on underwear and it goes into the household wash, so with other people's clothes.
How safe is this?
Response from Dr. Frascino
The HIV-transmission risk from dried semen and/or the scenarios described in your post are completely nonexistent. I'd suggest you spend some time perusing the wealth of information on this site, in the archives of this forum and on the related links. Pay particular attention to exactly how HIV is and is not transmitted.
