HIV trough vaginal fluid contact in eye

I previosuly posted a question. I visited a strip club in South Africa. The dancers would play with they vaginas and then rub their breasts. They will then rub their breasts in our faces. What is my hiv risk. I had an answer of no risk to this question but without an explanation. Surely there must be some risk as it is vaginal fluid to a mucus membrane?

hiv is transmitted through...
unprotected vaginal / anal intercourse
sharing iv drug works
mother to child

transmission takes place INSIDE the body...as in penis in vagina / anus.  when hiv is exposed to air...it becomes inactive and rendered incapable of infecting.

you had NO risk...testing is not warranted.

firstly it annoys me to the hills that South Africa seems to be a country that must have some sort of special HIV strain that is more conagious or deadly than others .... granted we have the highesr HIV prevelance in the world but it is no different , you are not at risk as the virus dies within seconds of air exposure and actual unprotected penetration is needed to even consider exposure ...

I actually live in South Africa. How is this scenario different from blood splash in the eye which is defenitely a risk

You don't work in surgery so a blood splash outside the healthcare field wouldn't be a risk, nor semen in the eye.

they rubbed their vagina then their breasts then rub their breasts in your face which probably took several minutes and not seconds... the virus would have died by the time it came into contact with the breast ...

HIV is not alive it is either active or inactive and it's not transmitted outside its host.

Please may I ask why is blood splashed into the eye in a health care setting different from for eg a shot of semen straight out of a penis in the eye or vaginal fluid rubbed immediatly after leaving the vagina into an aye
