Yes, You Can Get a Sexually Transmitted Infection Without Having Sex!

4. Blow Jobs.  Sorry to break it to you kids, but it’s not just the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that considers oral sex, well, sex. Whatever you call it — BJ, going down on, eating out, 69, suck off, fooling around, playing the skin flute, or even getting to third base — having mouth to genital contact is sexual contact, and it comes with a risk of contracting some STIs. While there is little to no chance of contracting HIV through oral sex, the CDC warns that the giver of condomless oral sex is especially at risk of STIs like syphilis, herpes, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Human papillomavirus (the most common sexually transmitted infection in the US, which can lead to genital warts and certain kinds of cancer) and possibly the Zika virus. Meanwhile, rim jobs or anilingus (aka mouth to anus contact) can also transmit hepatitis A and B, intestinal parasites like Giardia, and bacteria like E. coli.
