Handjob with fresh vaginal fluid on handóworth testing over?
« on: September 26, 2020, 05:05:52 pm »
I am an uncircumcised man, and recently had protected vaginal sex with a woman of unknown HIV status. I didnít ejaculate during intercourse, so I withdrew with the intact condom still on, and she gave me a handjob with the condom on for several seconds. She then pulled the condom off, and using the same hand (now wet with her fluids that were on the outside of the condom) continued the handjob, making contact with the head of the penis and urethra. In other words, her fluids that were on the outside of the condom were transferred to her hand which were then transferred to the head of my penis within several seconds.

My understanding from reading other posts is that body fluids OUTSIDE of the body cannot transmit HIV. Do the circumstances I outlined change that fact? I do know this can be a risk for other STIs, as I did get trich (and was treated for it) from an ex-girlfriend when she touched my penis with vaginal fluid on her hands. Is it worth testing for HIV over this particular act?

No, it is not worth testing for HIV-antibodies because of the activity that you have described.  The HIV is fragile and does not survive in the ambient environment in an infectious manner (in the way you describe, moving from one thing to another).

You did not contract the HIV from your "safer-sex" encounter.

Please access this link to learn how the virus is transmitted:
