Please help!!

Feb 12, 2014

Hi. Recently I have been exploring anal masturbation and as I am under 18 I have not had access to proper lubrication. I am a male, btw. So then I decided to use my father's lube. He lives with a girlfriend and had like ten almost empty bottles of it in his drawer. I masturbated with some lube from one of these bottles. Is it possible that if he or his girlfriend had hiv, some of their bodily fluids got into the bottle and into me? I have been worrying quite a bit and a detailed answer would be very appreciated. Thanks.

Response from Mr. Glenn

This does not require a detailed answer. There is no risk.

HIV is not able to survive outside the body for very long (less than minutes).

Hope this helps,
