I fingered a lady of unknown status with a condom in my finger and gave her orgasm three times. She was lying on a massage table. After that, we cleaned our hands with alcohol. I laid down on the same massage table and she gave me a handjob. My back was facing the massage table. Is it possible there that there was some vaginal fluid on the table that went into my anus?? The table was visibly dry.

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission through possible entry of vaginal fluid into your anus.

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

There is No Risk in this scenario due to the HIV Transmission Equation (see below) not being satisfied. HIV transmission requires HIV particles in a bodily fluid (e.g. vaginal fluids, blood, semen, etc.) to have direct access to the bloodstream through a High, Low, or Negligible Risk activity. In this case, although we have a bodily fluid capable of having HIV positive particles (i.e., vaginal fluid) and a possibility of direct access to enter bloodstream (e.g. through the anus), we do not have a High, Low, or Negligible Risk activity taking place (e.g. anal sex, sharing needles).

Furthermore, another important consideration is the fact that HIV (contained in a body fluid such as vaginal fluid) is extremely sensitive to the outer environment. Exposure to oxygen in the air causes HIV to undergo a rapid reduction in concentration (1). From the CDC, HIV contained in a bodily fluid has a rapid (within several hours) reduction in concentration of 90-99%, which would render it inactive (1). Therefore even if there was vaginal fluid on the table, any possible HIV positive particles would have been inactivated.

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

All the best,
AIDS Vancouver Online/Helpline, Shirley
