Hiv symptoms and how long do the intial symptom last.

Question: 

Hi,

Can Hiv be contracted through uretha of penis while having handjob, if the person touches the opening with semen, blood.

Answer: 

Hi there, thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your HIV related questions and concerns. We're happy to help!

No, HIV cannot be contracted when receiving a Handjob. handjobs are a No Risk Activity because there's no direct exchange of bodily fluids. Even if there was blood or semen on the hand, it would be exposed to the environment outside of the body, and HIV is a delicate virus that cannot survive outside of the body. It becomes damaged and inactivated and can no longer be passed on, thus eliminating any risk associated.

I hope this helped!

Sincerely,

Christina
