STD Transmission

Apr 19, 2012


I visited massage palours and was offered a handjob.I used their towels and bed sheet during their massage.

I did not have any sexual intercourse, oral or anal sex of any kind. Infact, there wasnt even any genital to genital contact.

Recently, I found a pimple like growth on the top mid shaft of the penis. It looks exactly like a pimple with a little pus after squeezing it. It is small in size. Is this a STD?

Am I at risk of any STD , as other than the massage palour incident, I do not engage in any other sexual activities.

Thank you

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

This does not sound like an STD. No STD causes a pimple like growth with puss inside it. STD's are not readily transmitted via masturbation. It sounds like it was just a pimple.

In health,
