|Can HIV be transmitted through oral sex and mutual masturabation ?t
Dec 20, 2013
Hello sir, Recently, I met a guy. We did mutual masturbation and he gave oral sex on me. I don't know his HIV status. When he masturbated me he used his saliva as lubricant. I don't know if there were blood or not in his saliva. Can I get infected ? And he gave oral sex on me. I don't know if there were blood or not in his saliva. Can I get infected through this way. ( It was not hard sucking). Also he rubbed his penis on the pink area of my anus. I don't know if there was pre cum on his penis or not. Can HIV be transmitted through this way ? I am really worried. Please help.

The risk of HIV transmission with oral sex is extremely low. It is even reasonable to state that for the person receiving oral sex (that is on whom oral sex is being performed) the risk of acquisition of the virus is practically zero. For the person placing his or her mouth on someone else's genitals, the risk may be slightly higher but still very very low. Theoretically, obvious cuts, wounds, sores, or infections in the mouth could raise this risk. But relatively speaking this is still considered to be a low-risk sexual activity as the mouth is not a hospitable place for the HIV virus. Please note that other sexually transmitted infections are readily spread via oral contact and you may need to be checked for these.
Mutual masturbation does not pose a risk for HIV transmission.
