Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission from receiving a handjob.

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, we have No Risk because receiving a handjob only involves your own bodily fluids (e.g. semen and pre-cum) and not another individual's, and also because it involves an activity that provides no direct access to your bloodstream.

All the best,
AIDS Vancouver Online/Helpline, Shirley
