A 19-year-old female asked:

If i have a sore on my genitals and someone with a cut on his hand uses his hand to touch my genitals, is it likely i will get an std?

The opposite: A genital sore is likely due to a STD. Instead of being at risk of getting an STD- you are at risk at transmitting an STD to your partner.

Risk of STI : You need exposure to sexual activity to be at risk
