Mixing semen with semen

May 22, 2014

Hi, a couple of hours ago I did something with a stranger which I'm worried has put me at risk of HIV infection. I masturbated a man while he masturbated me - he came first (onto my hand) and I used that hand to finish myself off, and came into it too. The mixed semen was therefore in touch with my penis - I'm worried that I might have contracted the virus in that way. What do you think the chances are?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

Overall, I would not be concerned. The virus does not live well outside of the human body. Also, any virus present would still have a difficult time finding its way into your bloodstream through an incident like this.

In health,


same symptoms but test result negative
Can I forget about my mistake over 25 weeks ago?
