Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: If a man has an STD, and he touches himself and then touches a female's genital area, can she catch it ?

Answer from Dr. Locker

It is possible, such as with herpes, but it is not probable. If you know you have an STD, then you and your partner can be sure to practice safer sex. For more information, you may want to read my answers to the other questions under the heading "Safer Sex, STDs and AIDS."
