Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about your risk of acquiring HIV when you rubbed your penis near the vagina of a fully clothed person. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation(1). It does not satisfy the equation because:

  • HIV needs direct access to enter the bloodstream. By this we mean avenues such as inside of the vagina or the anus, or by other mucousal membranes.

  • HIV does not survive long outside the human body (such as on surfaces like clothing), and it cannot reproduce outside of a human host.(2)

We understand that in the scenario you provided, you rubbed your penis near the vagina of a fully clothed person. You were concerned that there may have been some vaginal fluid on the clothing, and that this could be a means by which you could acquire HIV. As per the information above, HIV does not survive long outside of the human body. This means that there is No Risk of acquiring HIV from vaginal fluid on clothing. Any vaginal fluid on the clothing would be outside of the body, and thus exposed to external environmental influences and unable to reproduce. There must also be direct access for HIV to enter the bloodstream. In the scenario you described, there was no direct access for HIV to enter your bloodstream. Rubbing your penis near a fully clothed vagina does not provide direct access to the bloodstream.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.
