Can HIV be transmitted by rubbing genitals?

By Andrea Rodrigo B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 09/16/2022

Although the probability is low, if the rubbing of genitals is direct, i.e., without underwear, contagion is possible, provided that there has been contact of sexual or blood fluids even though there has been no penetration.
