Can STDs Be Transmitted by Hands?
Q: Hi, I’m a 21-year-old guy. Would I get any kind of STD if I gave a handjob and touched my penis with the same hand right away, without washing my hand? Thanks in advance.
Yes , you may get an STD this way too.
Mode of Spread
It is not necessary that STD would spread only during the sexual activity.
The bugs causing them reside in the body fluids, including semen, vaginal fluid and even blood. Also, lesions caused by them also harbor these bugs.
So, after the hand job, since you didn’t wash your hands before touching your own parts, there are chances that the infected fluid touched you.
Apart from infected fluids, a few STDs may spread via skin contact too. These include herpes and even syphilis.
So, if in doubt, it would be good to get yourself investigated.
