In brief: No
STDs are most common in people who have unprotected sex with multiple partners.
Each STD has its own predilection for sub-segments of the population and there are some differences in susceptibility between males and females. If you are careful, and use protection, then man or woman, gay or straight, you never have to worry about STDs.
