Hello, I am a 21 year old boy and had an encounter in a theater with a man sometime back. It involved a handjob with a certain amount of anal fingering. Now as he was a stranger, there is no way of saying whether he was HIV positive or not. Also, as the theater was dark, I couldn't make out whether he had any cuts.
I would like to know whether, under any circumstances, the situation described above would lead me to contract HIV. I tested negative at the 6 week mark. Now, I'm waiting for the 3 month period. An answer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Thanks for your question,
There's no risk for HIV in this situation. Handjobs and anal fingering don't transmit HIV.
To get HIV, a body fluid carrying HIV (blood, semen, vaginal fluid, or breast milk) must come out of someone's body and go immediately/directly inside of another person's body.
Hope this helps! Sometimes sex with people we don't know well can make us nervous about "getting something." In these cases, paying attention to the type of sexual contact is where the answers lie!
