std from handjob
Sep 30, 2012

i recently had a woman give me a handjob (she was a street walker) and i really dont know if i could get a std from that or not. i am really nervous about it because i have read that you cant get a std from that but you can with skin to skin contact and it is really confusing me. i wanted to know can i have a std from that.

Response from Dr. McGowan

Your risk of acquiring a STD from only receiving a "handjob" is virtually zero. This answer assumes that no other form of sexual contact took place. Thanks Joe
