    Can a papercut make you possible to contract HIV?
    ddlo927 posted:
    Please help me ease my growing anxiety! Around 2 weeks ago I gave a handjob to someone I knew. He did not ejaculate, but had precum. I did touch the precum. Less than an hour before this, I got 2 papercuts that were fairly deep on my pinky and they were bleeding. I'm very worried that this could have posed a risk for HIV. I do not know his HIV status, and it's really starting to worry me. What is the risk of me contracting HIV from this? Thanks so much for your help!
