Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission given the act of anal self-stimulation, using your own saliva as lubricant - as well as with dirty hands (dirt, semen, etc).

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of No Risk (Transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario). The scenario and actions you have described are of absolutely No Risk to you when it comes to HIV acquisition. HIV is only transmitted through person to person contact. HIV transmission may only occur through High Risk, Low Risk, or Negligible Risk activities such as anal/vaginal sex, needle sharing, or breastfeeding while not on anti-retroviral therapy, and is not transmitted through the act of anal self-pleasure with the use of your own semen or spit as lubricant.

For this reason, you may consider the activities that you are engaging in as safe practice when it comes to HIV transmission.

Recommendation: No need for HIV testing for the scenario provided, please refer to a health care provider for additional health related questions.

All the best,

AIDS Vancouver Online/Helpline, Cody
