"HIV RISK" from masturbation with HIV+ partner's cum

Apr 15, 2012

Would i be infected for using my poz partner's cum to jerk off?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your very interesting question,

If we look at how HIV is transmitted, just jerking off with his cum really wouldn't be enough to get it up inside your body. Penetrative sex is unique in that fluids are moved around in a closed environment. They can be pushed (over and over) up inside your body (e.g. the hole at the end of the penis). Other things that can help put your mind at ease are that the HIV in the cum begins to die as soon as it leaves the body and if your partner's viral load is really low (i.e. undetectable), then the risk would be low even if you were penetrated.

Hope this helps!
