Response from Mr. Kull

Sexually transmitted infections can only be acquired if you have sexual contact with someone who is infected with and STD. Infection with an STD is caused by bacteria or virus that are actually passed from one person to another through intimate sexual contact. STDs are not acquired in other ways, nor are they simply "created" by having sexual activity with someone who is not infected.
