Hey,

Yesterday, I went to a stripclub in THAILAND (renown for its sex industry) where I found myself a nice looking girl to have some fun with. During our encounter, I fingered her then seconds later jerked off with that same hand (eventually cumming) Am I at risk of inheriting HIV? I know HIV isn't compatible with oxygen when exposed to, but i'm really nervous and I'm getting different types of responses. Some say HIV doesn't last long but how long???

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the HIV risk associated with using the same hand to masturbate after fingering. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the [Transmission Equation](https://www.aidswindsor.org/healthy-me/hiv-transmission/) because HIV-containing fluids would not have direct access to your bloodstream (1). Also, the vaginal fluids present that may contain HIV would be exposed to oxygen, rendering it inactive as HIV does not survive long outside the human body (2).

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

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Marie
