Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there Fingering is considered a low-risk for HIV. I am not aware of any documented cases of anyone becoming infected with HIV specifically through this activity. If there are fresh, open cuts on the fingers, there would be some possibility of infection. However, I would not consider your small paper cut as a risk. See the article below for more information.
