masturbation and oral sex

Jul 12, 2000

I realize that getting a blow job is considered a low risk act, however, if one were to masturbate for a short period before receiving the blow job, would that increase ones risk? I am getting my results back in a few days and I am very scared. Thank you for your time

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Masturbating before you receive a blow job (oral sex, fellatio) does not increase your risk for getting HIV. There is essentially no risk of HIV infection through receiving oral sex.
