mutual masturbation and receiving oral sex

Question: 

I have a doubt regarding mutual masturbation. It is possible to become infected with hiv if during mutual masturbation some preseminal liquid contacts sensible areas of the partner´s pennis such as urethra, inner foreskin or glans?. And what about receiving unprotected oral sex.

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about acquiring HIV from mutual masturbation and receiving unprotected oral sex. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk (There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission).

HIV transmission occurs when the three criteria of the HIV transmission equation are satisfied. The criteria include: bodily fluid containing HIV having direct access to the bloodstream through a high risk activity.

The act of mutual masturbation is considered to be a No Risk activity as the bodily fluids involved do not have direct access to the bloodstream in this action. However the act of receiving unprotected oral sex is considered to be negligible because there is an exchange of bodily fluids, but there has there been a confirmed report of transmission through this act (1).

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission refer to Physician for more personalised answers.
