fresh paper cut

Question: 

Hi I gave a hand job to my new boyfriend..after I was washing my hand from his semen I realized I had a deep fresh non bleeding paper cut on my index finger out of no where....what are risks? I don't know when I got this cut but I know it was fresh since it looked red but it wasn't bleeding and also not even painful...please help

Answer: 

Hi there,

Handjobs are considered negligible risk for HIV transmission. While paper cuts can be painful and annoying, you would basically need to have a giant gaping oozing wound (think being stabbed with a giant knife) before it would be a concern.

Take care! Maggie
