Yes: Gonorrhea is passed in sexual fluids and a condom does not protect all surfaces that get wet during sex even if it remains intact. If the person has gonorrhea and has had less than adequate treatment (week+) they should be considered a contagious & avoided unless you don't care if you get it. Penicillin is not the treatment of choice anyway since resistant strains emerged in the 1970's.
