A 21-year-old member asked:

If I wash thoroughly with rubbing alcohol after sex, will I lessen my chance for an std?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
No: No, rubbing down with rubbing alcohol is not effective at reducing your risk of obtaining an std. Stds are spread by contact with skin to infected skin or infected secretions from someone who has the std. After you have sex with someone who is infected is precisely the wrong time to be concerned for getting an std. Practice safe sex - always. Protect yourself and be prepared for safe sex!
