Hello!
I am scared of HIV-transmittance or other sexually transmitted diseases. My friend ejaculated and he made his pants wet. That is the first time when we could get in contact with his semen fluid. The second time he came he wanted to make sex, but I disagreed. He already tried to put on his condom but first tried it the wrong way (turned outside down). I took it off and showed him how to do it the normal way the next time, because he really seemed not able to do it properly, so I also got in touch with his penis. Still he wanted to do something and started fingering me, where I agreed now, but I started bleeding (it was quite a lot of blood).
Is there any danger of any disease transmittance in this way? He didn't wash his hands in between, and he has definitively touched his penis, so did I, or touched his wet pants.
I am sorry for the detailed description and thank you for your answer!

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your HIV/AIDS related health information. You seem to be concerned about the possibility of HIV transmitting. We're happy to answer this question for you.

So it seems what happened is that your partner ejaculated, and after that while putting on a condom you came into contact with his penis. After that he fingered you after perhaps had come into contact with ejaculate. These are all no risk situations, for a number of reasons. To start, check out our transmission equation to get a better sense of what is involved in HIV transmission:
HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
You'll see that required for transfer are a bodily fluid known to be involved in transfer, an activity involved in transfer, as well as direct access to the bloodstream. In addition to this, consider that HIV does not survive well on outside the body (which is the reason why direct access to the bloodstream is required). So if your partner touched ejaculate and then fingered you, there is still no risk of transfer occurring for this reason. As for your other concern (that transmission may have occurred through touching his ejaculate yourself), there is simply no access to the bloodstream through this, so no risk.

Thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
