In brief: Yes.

Std's, or sexually transmitted disease, are by definition an infection you acquire through sexual activity (like unprotected anal sex).
There are many possible std's that could be transmitted this way, including hiv, gonorrhea, and more. If you have had unprotected sexual activity or have a new partner, make a doctor's appointment and get tested right away.
