Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Just sex massage won't cause or transmit HIV infection from one person to another person, unless there is contact of body fluids like semen or vaginal fluid.

Flu fever will go away in few days, but cough and cold will take time to go. You got tested for HIV and other STDs, all were negative. So, don't worry.

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