[Question #1618] Boobjob

45 months ago
Hi thanks for taking my question.  I received a massage and a boobjob.  I noticed two pimples on the masseuses breasts.  I asked what they were and she said pimples.  Should I be concerned that they may have been something else?  Do I need any sort of sti testing?  Can I resume sex with my regular partner?
Thank you very much.

Welcome back to the forum.

Although I'm not familiar with "boobjob", I imagine it means you were masturbated with or between your massage partner's breasts. That carries no risk of STD. As I said in my reply to your question 6 months ago (#828), "Here is the main information you need to know to protect yourself from STDs:  they require a penis inside a vagina, rectum, or mouth. That's all." No STDs cause skin pimples on the body, and there is no reason to suppose your partner's pimples were anything else. You do not need testing and can safely continue sex with your regular partner.

Sorry one super quick follow up...I'm assuming no difference if it was a massage parlour?
Thank you.

No difference where it took place or the risk level of your partner. She could have been a sex worker infected with any STD you can name and my reply would be the same.

STDs are not simply genital infections and therefore sexually transmitted. The bacteria and viruses that cause them evolved to require sex itself for transmission -- usually meaning direct contact of wet mucous membranes (not skin), generally with penile penetration into vagina, rectum, or mouth. If genital fluids on hands or elsewhere on the skin could transmit them, we would all be at risk from shaking hands with people after they used the toilet or scratched their genitals and from other non-intimate contat; they would be much more common than they are; and they wouldn't be classifed as STDs to begin with.

That completes this thread.

Please note that the forum does not permit repeated questions on similar issues by the same users. This will have to be your last one; future new questions on this topic will be deleted without reply and without refund of your posting fee. This policy is based on compassion, not criticism, and is designed to reduce temptations to keep paying for questions with obvious answers; because experience shows that repeated replies to such questions tends to simply prolong anxieties about them; and because such questions have little educational value for other users, one of the forum's main purposes. I trust you understand.

Best wishes and stay safe.
