Handjob with small amounts saliva lead to infection?

Sep 1, 2013


This may come off as a stupid question but when it comes to HIV I feel that no question is stupid. I've posted this several times and I'm to sure if I need to make a donation first, if so please let me know.

I was with a female friend of mine 2 days ago in which she "jerked" me off coupled with inserting my penis between her breasts with lotion as a lubricant. There might have been some of her saliva on her chest and therefore maybe on my penis, I finished on her chest. After that, I thoroughly washed my gentiles with soap for about a minute. Does this pose any risk? Should I get tested?

We did not kiss or have oral/vaginal/anal sex.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You are HIV free from this experience. HIV is not transmitted by saliva. Having boob sex and use of saliva for lubricant is not a risk for HIV transmission. HIV transmission occurs when there is a prolong and direct exchange of body fluid, blood, semen, vaginal fluid or mothers breast milk/mother to child. Because you did not experience any of these body fluid exchanges you did not put yourself at risk.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Hiv transmission through scalp acne/folliculitis
