gay massage

Sep 11, 2012

Hello, i received a massage from a gay man recently and he ended up giving me a handjob with oil on my penis. At the end of the massage he asked me to touch his penis as well. Am i at any risk of getting hiv? I am a bit scared and havent been able to get a definitive answer. Looking for your help.

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- Hand-jobs are not considered to be significant HIV-transmission risks. There is no evidence that HIV has ever been transmitted through receiving a massage or a handjob.

Take care,


did i get hivs or any other diseases
Can I ge AIDS touching someones urinal?
