Sometimes: STDs such as herpes and HPV are transmitted via contact of the skin and so you have to be careful. Condoms are helpful but not 100%. It's important to have a conversation with your partner about their risk when engaging in sexual practices.

Yes, its possible: STDs can be passed this way. Best wishes!
