I am just curius if anyone has any comments regarding this heavily resaarched issue. I have looked into many reports and articles to find mixed opinions. Is fingering (anal or vaginal) a risk for HIV? If so, is the risk equal to sexual intercourse? Most sources dont include fingering as a mode of transmission but some do so I am confused. I also am worried because fingering is the only sexual practice I have engaged in that was risky. Should I be worried?

Unless you have open sores and they have mass amounts of blood leaking from them there is no chance. HIV is transfered through fluids, since the fingers don't emit fluid you are cool.

Fingering is probably a theoretical risk if you have open wounds on your fingers. But I have never heard of any documented cases of HIV being spread that way, and it sure seems unlikely to me.

There hasn't been 1 case where someone has been infected with HIV from fingering. Think about how many times it happens everyday? It just dont happen from fingering. The ways it can happen is from unprotected sex Vaginal and anal and IV users. Move on and know how to protect yourself. Wear a condom everytime and you can have a normal sex life and not worry..
