I am Dr. Kakkar. I have gone through your query and I have understood it.

HIV does'nt survive outside the body, therefore you need not worry about acquiring HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Not possible to get HIV via this route, not at all. As I said before the virus does'nt survive outside the body. So no way it could have stayed alive on towel.

Moreover, the virus must have access to the bloodstream directly through a break in the mucosa/skin. Just wiping the penis with a supposedly HIV infected towel won't be sufficient for the virus to enter the blood stream.
