HIV and Urethra (pee hole), read a lot but cannot find the answer! Please help!

Aug 21, 2012

Hi doc, this is already my second question, the first one have not been answered. Ive read an answer by Dr Bob said that HIV virus can transfer through urethra (pee hole). My question is, it it possible for me to be infected by HIV while receiving handjob?? Assuming that the sex worker is HIV+. I used condom while receiving handjob but the sex worker touch my penis first b4 inserting the condom. If her hand got HIV+ semen from other customer, or she itself is HIV+, is it possible the virus will go through urethra while massaging my penis? Her hand also touch inside the condom b4 she put it on me.. Im still virgin. Never have inner sexual intercourse.. Please answer doc.. please help me!! TQ

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there

No, the exposure you describe does not pose a risk for infection. You would have to have a whole lotta hiv infected fluid delivered directly up and in your "pee hole" to be at risk. This is not the case with a hand job. Take care, LHW
