Risk from mutual masturbation - confused
vegasgm posted:
I'm a gay male and recently had mutual masturbation with another male. There was no oral or anal penetration or rubbing etc.

How possible is it that if someone was using their hand to masturbate me and then themselves could virus be spread that way?

Online I've read different reports from not possible to theoretical but low risk.

The reason I'm asking is I may have herpes (had symptoms but never a positive blood test) and someone was masturbating me and then used the same hand to masturbate himself. I'm worried what the risk is for him.

how long after touching your penis did he touch his?
vegasgm replied to An_253548's response:
Pretty soon afterwards. There also was lube used and he had put a lot of his saliva on my penis while he masturbated me, so I'm thinking that would have perhaps diluted any possible virus?
