Question: Hello doc.. I am homosexual. Day before yesterday I gave a handjob to a guy with unknown HIV/STD status..and while giving him handjob I found some kind of small wonds around the public area (but not on the pennis) I didn't do much and stopped the action so he didn't ejaculate. I asking him regarding that and he said "I had itching problem so it has happened, I don't know" I asked him to wear jeans and we both hugged each other ( both were on.cloths ) and rubbed bodies Little... I am very much worried about this incident, and my skin on my palm peels of due to winter and it has created lots of tension..I want to hear from u , do I need to worry?

Brief Answer:

No risk of STDs including HIV

Detailed Answer:


There is no risk of transmission of any STDs including HIV through skin to skin contact like a Handjob. STDs are only transmitted through unprotected sex - either vaginal, anal or oral sex.

Perhaps he had scabies but that still does not predispose you to acquire any STDs including HIV by performing a Handjob on him.

Rubbing bodies against each other with the clothes on is definitely not a risk for transmission of STDs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
