My opinion: Probably not. It is most likely secondary to mechanical trauma. The use of lubricants can help to minimize the friction and thus the injury. If the are eruptions and skin lesions on the genitalia, then a testing for herpes is recommended.

Likely traumatic: If you are concerned about STDs then you may have symptoms at other times. Herpetic vesicles may be too little to see, may cause mild burning, may show in groups, may leave a small tiny sore or ulcer. Candidiasis is common in males too with whitening area in the prepucium or glance. Use of lubricants may prevent injuries during sex.
