HIV does not live well outside of the human body. Once the virus leaves the human body it immediately starts to die. Within a minutes time, under most conditions, the virus becomes unable to infect another person. This is why pentrative sex and sharing drug works offer a hospitable environment for transmission - the virus is not exposed to unstable conditions such as air, heat, and cold.
