Hi, if i took a sip of a beer that could have infected blood or sperm could i get hiv, i bite my mouth, but these are small cuts, and i took just a sip straight to my throat. Although there could have been sperm on the lid orot or it was just saliva, but if it was sperm could i get hiv if it touched my lips and if i drank a beer without unknown amount od infected sperm or blood. Thanks in advance

Thanks for your question,
There is absolutely no risk in what you're talking about!
To get HIV, there needs to be an infectious body fluid (e.g. blood, semen, breast milke, vaginal fluids) coming out of someone's body and going immediately/directly inside of your yours.
Even if there were blood or semen with HIV on your beer glass there would be nothing immediate or direct about your situation.
Hope this helps,
