masturbating after holding onto a public railing

Aug 18, 2012

is it possible to get hiv if u hav masturbate right after holding onto a public railing without washing your hands

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, NO! There would have to be fresh fluid, semen, vaginal fluids or blood on the railing and you would have a newly open wound on your hand and the HIV transmission would be from the railing to your hand, not from your hand to your masturbating!

You are fine!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Can't stop worrying...
lets clear mind
