No No sex, but I want to know if he safe to safe just touching touching my vaginal with his fingers, will there any transmission or he should wear the gloves. Because If I tell him to use gloves touching my vaginal he is not agree to use gloves. He says there is no problem touching with fingers.

(2) If semen/sperm touches in a small part of the skin body for example in hip or hand etc. is there any some hiv transmission.

Answer

You should direct your HIV questions to the HIV forum please. Your husband is correct that you will not get HIV from touching your vagina. It is okay to share spoons and forks. Sperm next to your skin will not transmit infection.
