Watching Porn Videos HIV

Question: 

Can I get HIV and AIDS if I watch porn on my IPad?

Answer: 

Hello and thank you for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline!

It sounds like you have some concerns in regard to HIV.

When it comes to HIV it is important to note that in order for HIV transmission to be possible there needs to be a body fluid, an activity such as unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse and a direct access to enter the bloodstream. AIDS, which is known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is the symptoms and illnesses that occur at the final stages of HIV. Thus, in your situation, you would be at No Risk of acquiring HIV as the activity does not fulfill any of the required factors for HIV transmission to be possible.

For more information about HIV and AIDS I would recommend visiting HIV Basics.
