Hi there and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. My name is Colin and I'm happy to answer your questions today.

I understand you are concerned for your friend after he masturbated into a used condom and are wondering if it had experienced sufficient air exposure. I hope the information I can give you will put your mind at ease.

Right away I can tell you that this would have been a no risk exposure. When you read that once HIV has been exposed to the air it is no longer transmissible it really only does take a second or so. Even though there might have been fluid inside the used condom, it still would have been considered thoroughly exposed to the air by the time your friend masturbated into it. Because of all of this, this can be considered a no risk exposure for HIV.

I hope the information I was able to give you can help put your mind at ease. Please feel free to post again if you'd like any more information or clarification.

All the best,

Colin
