Scratches & mutual masturbation

Dear Team,

My cat scratched my forehead in the morning and, later in the afternoon, I hooked up with another man.
All we did was to masturbate one another, no oral or anal. I am concerned if some of his precum fluid splashed onto my scratch that I am at a risk of contracting HIV do to the scratch being fresh? It was not a deep scratch but it had only happened a few hours ago. Could you please advise me?

You never had an exposure.

Thank you for your quick response and for all the good work that you do allaying people's fears.  One quick question however - Does the fact that the scratch was fresh and had not scabbed over alter the equation?

I am still unclear as to why my incident was not at risk for HIV. The wound was a pretty good size and it had bled a few hours prior to my hooking up.  Also, the wound was still raw and not scabbed over. Would you mind clarifying why there was no risk with this incident? Thanks.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

My BF is Job positive.   He was was brushing hid teeth and gums.    Blood came from his gums.    He then clean his gums with peroxide and Epson salt.      I was showing him my feet that my toes can siding out.    He put his mouth on my toe to suck it. But I took it out.   I checked to see if I have a cut.  With preoxide, it did not bubble up.   I also put alcohol it did not burn.    I did this to see if I had any cut on my toes.     I am worried be causes when he spat in the sink later, there was a little blood in his salival.   Am I at risk.

Hello Teak, My BF is HIV. HE was cleaning his  gums.   And he spat out blood on the sink but then he cleaned is gums with preoxide and epsol salt. He  Put his mouth on my toes but I pulled them out.   When he went to the sink he spit. There was a little blood in his spit.    

I did washed my toe with preoxide and alcohol.   There were no burning or bubbling from the preoxide or alcohol.  I guess this means I did not have a cut. Am I at risk.
