Hand job effects?

Mar 18, 2012

Hey dr, Iv never had real sex and so I just do hand jobs... Are there any bad sides for that? Because Iv recently experienced infection like bumps on upper thigh and leg...and I don't know what might have caused it. I am under the age of 20 and would like to know if anything major would occur like not being able to have babies or any big illness.

Thanks in advance!

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Hand jobs are not a way for you to get HIV. There is no exchange of body fluid with anyone. This is the only way for HIV transmission to occur.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Am I being too paranoid
