Even if the semen contains HIV virus, the virus can not in the open air, i mean outside the human body. So the virus become inactive and will not infect you. Please stop thinking about HIV.

sorry to bother you ,
but i read on CDC site that,
drying of HIV-infected human blood or other body fluids reduces the theoretical risk of environmental transmission to that which has been observed–essentially zero.

but what if semen wet state ?

In a public toilet?There is NO Hiv risk at all from what you describe but you could have waited till you got home.It's not like you had the trots or the runs.
