While both MAY destroy the virus in a dish I wouldn't recommend using either as a means to that end. Both glycols are made from petro oil. Same stuff the gas in your car is made of. Neither have been approved for internal use. Plus even if you were able to ingest significant quantities without killing yourself you would never get all the virus that lurks inside.

Using it as a lubicant would be ineffective as well and may increase the chances of infection greatly due to the damage it may cause to the normal cells.

Since it is oil based it would also damage condoms. Propylene Glycol is most commonly found in antifreeze and is the ingredient that makes antifreeze deadly to ingest. Once inside the body it binds with enzymes in the liver and stays there. Causing liver failure and eventual death. The only treatment that is effective in treating Propylene Glycol poisoning is to give large doses of medical alcohol (vodka) that binds with the Propylene Glycol and is then flushed from your system. Not a pleasant experience at all, it is not like a few drinks. It's more like a night spent at a frat house as the geek being forced to drink a keg of beer all at once. You never have just the buzz.

Butylene glycol is found commonly in skin care products as a preservative. It helps keep creams filled with moisture. It has been linked to depression, vomiting, drowsiness,(in small doses) and coma and respiratory failure in large doses (the amount you would need to ingest to make any impact on HIV). Butylene is a dirivitive of butane same stuff you use as lighter fluid.

IN NO instance are either recommended for the use you ask about or for any use that involves taking them internally. Death will be the end result, PERIOD.
