Dear Sir or Madam,

3 weeks ago, I met a ladyboy at one room. During this encounter, I rubbed my penis with her penis, and she also rubbed her penis with my penis. While we were rubbing our penises together for 5 minutes, I was wearing my shorts and underpants, and she was wearing her panties only. During our rubbing penises, I noted that I did not see any fluids from her (for examples like pre-cum and semen) on my shorts, and her penis was not erect. We did not ejaculate after that, and I still did not see any fluids on my shorts. But, I still concerned that there could have been some fluids that I could not see. One more thing, I still wore the same shorts without my underpants for the whole day after this encounter. My concerns are that: 1 can I be infected with HIV from my rubbing penis with her penis like what I mentioned? 2 can I be infected with HIV from my shorts that I was wearing during and after my rubbing penis with her penis if my shorts had some fluids from her that I could not see?

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about the possibility of HIV transmitting during an encounter. We're happy to answer your question.

This is a no risk activity. To understand why, we encourage you to check out our transmission equation:

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
You'll see in the chart that required for transfer are all of a fluid known to be involved in transfer, an activity known to be involved in transfer, and direct access to the bloodstream. Rubbing (even without your clothes on) is not an activity known to be involved in transfer, nor does it provide direct access to the bloodstream. For these reasons, this activity is no risk.

To see the risks of many common activities, we encourage you to check out our [risk assessment page](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart). It'll help you get a better sense of the activities more commonly implicated in HIV transfer.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
