Response from Ms. Southall

Hi It's good to hear that you are working on getting yourself educated about HIV. When you are masturbating by yourself this is not a risk of HIV transmission. If your semen then comes into contact with anything else once it leaves your body it is not a risk for HIV transmission. For HIV transmission to occur if you were to come in to contact with fluid with your penis would be for it to enter your body, if there are no sores or openings besides the one on your penis then HIV transmission is not likely.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
