In brief: Not UTI but STD

Utis are not transmitted during sex.
Uti 's after sex are result of bacteria at your urinary meatus (opening) being milked up to the bladder during sex. Bacteria then multiply in the bladder causing a uti, hence advice to urinate after sex. Your partner, indulging with other women, is at risk for std and thus placing you at risk. Perhaps you should consider finding a new partner!
