Masturbation with Semen Mixed status couple
Jul 21, 2007

I am HIV positive and I am seeing an HIV negative man who knew I was positive before we met. He wants me to masturbate first so he can masturbate with my semen. Isn't this a high risk activity, especially in the long-term?

Response from Dr. Conway

First, congratulations on the issue of disclosure prior to any sexual activity taking place. It is important for everyone to be able to make informed decisions about their sexual practices knowing the risks that are involved. As for your specific question, direct exposure to your HIV-positive semen certainly carries a significant risk of transmitting the disease. I would strongly discourage this practice for this reason.
