HIV positive and masturbation

Feb 8, 2013

I am recently diagnosed HIV positive. I was wanting to know what precautions I should take with masturbation (self-masturbation, no one else involved).

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

You wouldn't need to take any precautions at all.

If you're concerned about HIV/STD risk, remember: when masturbating alone there's no one else to give you anything and no one else who you could give something to..



Have I contracted HIV?
