[Question #1561] Handjob Herpes Risk?

56 months ago
Good afternoon, doctors. I will keep my  question short. I went to a massage parlor this last Friday. The massaeuse was fully clothed, however I was naked. She proceeeed to give me a handjob and I ejaculated in her hands. Once again she was fully clothed, and my penis did not touch her genital area. I did not engage in vaginal, oral,  or anal sex. The next day I noticed a small area where my upper thigh and groin meet was a bid red. My penis looks normal as does everything else. Could 
the handjob result in Herpes? To be honest, if I hadn't had gone for this massage I wouldn't have nothiced the redness, although it is 
a little red nonetheless. She used oil. Nothing itches or hurts in any way.  If  there were lesions would I be in pain and would the
symptoms be more prnounced?' Is it safe to  engage in unprotected sex with signiticant other? Thanks

Here's the goodness and the short answer to your question.  There is absolutely NO RISK for herpes for the activities in which you were engaged with the massaeuse.  Zero.  Nada.  None. 
Hope that is helpful!
 And it's fine to engage in unprotected sex with your significant other without fear of any transmission to that person.

Thank you for your response. I just have one more question. I recently went to a strip club, in which I received a private lap dance. However, there was no oral, vaginal, or anal sex involved.

Instead, since she has large breasts, I mainly touched, kissed, licked, and sucked on them. In addition, we engaged in a "titty fuck," in which I did not wear a condom. Her mouth never touched my penis, or ever came close to it. I even ejaculated on myself. She also touched my chest and penis a little bit too.

Are there any STD risks involved?

No, none.  Zero.  Good for you - you are doing a very good job of practicing safe sex!

Thank you, I always practice safe sex. I figure it's always to be safe than sorry. I have one last question. It's more of a general question. 
What are the main ways to get an STD?

1.) Is oral sex with a condom safe? As long as the area not covered by the condom is prtotected.
2.) Is vaginal sex with a condom safe? As long as it is used correctly.
3.) Is oral sex without a condom safe? How risky is it?
4.) Can you get an STD from kissing on the lips?
5.) Can you get STD's from handjobs?
6.) Is "dry humping" safe?
7.) Is naked genital to genital rubbing safe?

Receiving oral sex with a condom is safe for covered areas.
Vaginal sex with a condom is safer, but not completely safe
Oral sex without a condom can present some lower risk.
You can get a cold sore from kissing
You can't get STD's from handjobs
Dry humping is safe if there is no genital to genital contact at all
Naked genital rubbing is not really safe, no, though not as risky as unprotected intercourse.
