Hi,

appreciate you for the vital infos.

as repeatedly quoted by you that below offers high chance of acquiring AIDS
(i) HIV transmits through bodily fluids(semen, vaginal fluid, anal fluid, rectal fluid, breast milk, blood, pre-cum)
(ii) high risk unprotected sex activity like vaginal sex, anal sex, oral sex, exchanging needles,french kissing when the partner has large bleeding injury on the mouth, lip etc that offers direct access to carry high level of HIV to another person's blood stream through Vagina,anus, penis, urethra, open injury's on mouth.

Currently do not have any injuries on my penis or anus or testicles etc

my question is ,

(1) wearing condom and if i get only hand job (not blow job or oral sex) & fingering on my penis, testicles etc from a sex worker but not allowing her to insert her fingers into my anus, hope this activity will not transmit HIV ? please clarify
(2) the skin on the penis, testicles etc are very soft and delicate so such softness or sensitiveness gives any chance to get HIV?
(3) Taking bath with a sex worker either naked or not and in jacuzzi or pool do not transmit HIV. am i correct?
(4) 6 months before had underdone a surgery on my hip but have removed the stitches 5 months before and the wound is completely cured and am also completely recovered but the scare on the skin which is stitched is still there, yes only the scare, so is this a risk to get AIDS?
(5) also am aware that HIV will not transmit through sweat, saliva(theoretically) or when exposed to AIR/OXYGEN. am i correct?
please advise

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It seems you want to get confirmation on how HIV is transmitted. Please see the information below.

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
Receiving oral sex is considered a Negligible Risk activity. There are no confirmed reports of HIV transmission from this activity.

As shown by the transmission equation for HIV to transmit it requires direct access to your blood stream. The reason that vaginal or anal sex are considered high risk is because the cavities are lined by mucosal membranes which are thinner than the skin cells and offer less protection.

Casual contact or having a bath with someone does not put you at risk of HIV transmission. It is correct that when HIV is in contact with saliva or tears it does not transmit.

The AIDS Vancouver Helpline Online forum has postings that are related to your question that you can read for additional information. If you have any further questions feel free to contact us again.
