Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there Mutual masturbation is an extremely low to no risk activity. HIV starts to die the moment it leaves the human body. Furthermore, the virus needs to find its way into your bloodstream. Just having the virus sitting on the surface of a your penis even with a bit seeeming to be near the opening does not mean it would be able to enter your body. Take care, LHW
