Hi there,

Thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for HIV related information.

The short answer is no. Let me explain why.

HIV transmission requires all of the following:

1. Body fluids containing high levels of HIV, e.g. blood, semen, and vaginal/rectal secretions,

2. A high-risk activity, e.g. unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse or the sharing of needles,

3. Direct access of HIV-containing body fluids into your bloodstream, e.g. through the anus, mucus membranes, or points of needle injection, and

4. A controlled environment, which means no exposure to air. HIV is an extremely weak virus that dies immediately once exposed to the air.

Receiving a handjob from an HIV positive person (if your masseuse was HIV positive, which is already a large assumption) is a no-risk activity. This is because handjobs A) do not involve the body fluids of your partner, only of you;b) do not involve direct access of any of your partner's body fluids into your bloodstream; and C) involve full exposure to the air, which means that any HIV present would have died on the skin of your masseuse's hands.

Fingering a vagina is a negligible risk activity. This means that although you are coming into contact with someone's body fluids and there is *technically* an exchange of body fluids, there has *never been a confirmed report* of HIV transmission from this activity out of the millions of HIV transmissions that have occurred. The chances of HIV transmission are extremely close to zero in this case, so you can consider yourself at no risk of contracting HIV from fingering your masseuse's vagina.

Let me also inform you that masseuses and other commercial sex workers are at no greater risk of being HIV positive than any other person. HIV does not discriminate based on occupation, gender, age, or sexuality -- instead, it is the activity itself that determines one's risk for contracting HIV.

I trust I have addressed your concerns. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us back.

In good health,

Tiina
