I am a male. I encountered a female of unknown status. As things progressed, she performed oral sex while I was wearing a condom. After which the condom was removed and she proceeded to masturbate me with her hands to ejaculation. The whole time I was fondling with her genital area but she was wearing her underwear and I never came into direct contact with her genital area. 

I did feel her underwear as being very moist. Will you be able to let me how if I was at risk. I tried to minimize any hiv risk but the moistness of her vaginal area and the removal of the condom at the end with her saliva still present at the time of masturbation. 
Thanks!

Hello and thank you for using the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline as a source of HIV related information.
The activities you had (receiving oral sex with a condom and mutual masturbation) pose absolutely no risk of acquiring HIV.
For the HIV acquisition to take place, 3 things have to be present:1) HIV+ bodily fluids (blood, pre-cum, semen, vaginal fluids, rectal secretions, breast milk) AND2) Activity (unprotected anal sex, unprotected vaginal sex, sharing needles, mother-to-child) AND3) Direct access to enter the bloodstream (through: vaginal, anus, urethra in the penis, points of needle injection)
There are no exchange of bodily fluids during oral sex with a condom and mutual masturbation (her giving you a handjob and you touching her genital area), hence no risk of HIV acquisition.
HIV is harder to acquire than you think. However, there are more than 30 STIs and some (syphilis, Chlamydia, and gonorrhea) are very common and easier to transmit. Safer sex (with condom) is still the best way to protect yourself and your partner(s) from many sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. In addition to that, there is no way the virus and/or bacteria can go through latex or polyurethane if a condom is used correctly and there is no breakage or slipping off of it.
The skin is the biggest barrier in our body and without an actively bleeding open cut at the moment, there is no way the virus can go/penetrate into your body and bloodstream.Saliva is not the bodily fluids that can pass the virus; also the virus dies as soon as being exposed to the air/oxygen.
There is no need for you to be tested for HIV or other STIs from this activities you are worried about. Many people don't use condom during oral sex, so I'm very happy to hear that you engaged in safer sex from all the way.
Hopefully you find the information helpful.If you have any other questions/concerns, please feel free to write us back.
