Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: Can I get a sexually transmitted infection from only putting the tip of my penis into the woman's vagina?

Answer from Dr. Locker

Yes. You can give or get an STI that is trasmitted from skin-to-skin contact: herpes and HPV (genital warts). Also, if your penis emits pre-ejaculatory fluid then you could give or get any STI that is transmitted from semen, such as: Chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B and HIV (the virus that causes AIDS). There is also a risk of pregnancy if you are doing this. Use a condom if you have any genital contact.
