If a masseuse uses a sex toy, anal stimulator when providing prostate or anal massage - is there a risk of catching HIV from that?

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV from a sex toy used by a masseuse. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be *Negligible Risk (there are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission), assuming that the toy is shared, but is cleaned between clients.

The scenario mentioned above could meet the three components of the [Transmission Equation](https://www.aidswindsor.org/healthy-me/hiv-transmission/) if the toy was not cleaned properly, but there are no documented cases of this occurring.

Recommendation:** There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. Refer to a physician for more personalized answers.

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Marie
