I am a married 33 yr old man with a young 5 year old. I recently went to an Asian massage parlor and the lady briskly rubbed my penis (uncircumsized) while massaging my quads. I did not let her masturbate me, as I have an inner fear of contacting something. I need your help in assessing my risk , as I feel I could have contacted HIV if her hand touch the head of my penis by mistake. At this point I've replayed the experience a thousand times and living in complete fear of even touching my wife. Please advise, and possible tell how you can contract this virus, that way I can put it behind me. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

You were not at risk in this situation. HIV would not be transmitted in a situation like this. HIV needs direct access to the bloodstream and does not live well outside of the body. Direct access happens most easily during incidences of unprotected penetrative sex and sharing needles. It does not happen during masturbation, kissing, or oral sex.

In health,
