No: STDs are harder to transmit than this. There is no known risk. In my nearly 40 years in the STD business, I have never seen a patient with STD who had not had sex.

How do you catch std?

Sexual activity: You can only catch an std by having sexual contact with another person. This can be from vaginal, oral or anal sex. Some diseases are passed from passing fluid from one person to the other. Others are passed from skin to skin contact.
