Answer: 

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about whether you were at risk of HIV exposure by performing oral sex without a barrier.

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be low risk (Evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met). Giving oral sex (either to a male-bodied or female bodied person) presents a potential for HIV transmission because of its involvement in the exchange of bodily fluids with direct access to the blood stream. While data is extremely limited on this subject, we do know the risk is not zero.

In HIV transmission, time is not a factor. Although you only performed oral sex for approximately 1 minute, there is still a risk of exposure due to the possibility of direct exchange of bodily fluids.

Please refer to your physician for a HIV test or any additional questions regarding risk of transmission.
