Are STDs transmitted only by sexual contact or by mixing blood? Which STDs are only sexually transmitted?

In brief: Few

Perhaps trichomonas and gonorrhea, although the latter could conceivably be transmitted through blood under some unusual circumstances.

In brief: Theoretically none

But trichomonas would be difficult to get through blood, as would gonorrhea, although the latter is possible on a theoretical basis.
It would also be very unusual to get herpes except by sexual activity unless you don't consider oral sex, sex.
