Casual Contact

Aug 18, 2000

Can you think of a situation where mutual masturbation could go beyond what you call casual contact. Is it likely that semen from a partner could enter the uthera mucous membrane throught a hand job....thank you.

Response from Mr. Kull

Masturbating with someone else is anything but casual! (That's meant to be a joke). I think of casual contact as being any sort of contact where you are not directly exchanging or contacting bodily fluids. This is not a perfect definition, so don't waste a lot of time trying to punch holes in it.

Try to think of the model for transmission. When infected fluids come into contact with your mucous membranes or blood stream, there is a chance of infection. The odds for transmission are dependent upon many variables. If someone's semen comes into contact with your urethra, there is a chance for infection. Ultimately, it doesn't matter what you call it.


Oral transmission of HIV
