Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the chance of acquiring HIV from masturbation during a massage. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk, meaning that the transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario.

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation. It does not satisfy the equation because HIV is rendered inactive when exposed to oxygen and the activity does not provide direct access to the bloodstream. No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.
