39 months ago
What’s the chance likelihood percentage of getting an STD from a high end massage place American girls. No sex  involved lots of touching , only oral once for a like 20 seconds , touch king gentitlas etc with hands. 
Should there be any concern? Also haven’t gone since last June and do not have any symptoms.

Welcome to the Forum. There are no STI which are meaningfully transmitted through touching a partner's genitalia. This is a form of masturbation and masturbation is a no risk sexual activity.  Just as there is a THEORETICAL risk that you could be struck by a meteorite falling from the sky, there is a theoretical risk of getting gonorrhea, chlamydia or non-gonococcal urethritis from receipt of oral sex but with an exposure of only seconds and the passage of over six months without symptoms, I see no realistic risk for infection and no need for testing.  I would not worry in the least about the exposures you describe.  I hope this information is helpful to you.  EWH
