sharing lube between two men

Sep 30, 2013

I'm 22 years old & a Virgin. I have neither HIV nor any disease. I use lube for masturbation.

A week ago my friend took my some of lube & used it for his sexual purpose. He gave me my lube back today & I used it. He has hepatitis C & I am worried. Am I infected?

Response from Mr. Glenn

There is no risk for HIV or Hepatitis C from what you're talking about.

Even if there was blood/semen in the the lube, it would have been diluted and not really had a chance to get inside of your body.

Hope this helps,


Anxious about HIV, could I have been at risk?
