Will I get infected with HIV after using a toilet paper to wipe my glans? Assume the paper is with little semen but placed under air for 3 minutes.

Will I get infected with HIV after using a toilet paper to wipe my glans? Assume the paper is with little semen but placed under air for 3 minutes.

Here's what you do: I'm not concerned. You and a friend enjoyed your bodies together, and cleaned up using the same tissue. Probably a majority of guys explore with another guy this way at one time or another. It's fine that you did this, many guys says it bonds them, and I'm glad you have a quality friend. The risk is near zero but it's good to be tested for HIV yearly just because you're an adult. Get it done. ...Read more
