No risk at all. Nobody gets HIV without intercourse (penis inside a partner's vagina or rectum), or by blood exposure as from sharred needles.

No, there is no HIV transmission risk in above scenario from inanimate surfaces. Check cdc.gov hiv-transmission for clarification. HIV related anxiety in the context of high risk sexual behavior is likely.
