with their dry clean fingers for a brief 5 seconds. his whole hand never touch the opening of my penis, am I at risk for an std from this?

Hi mechfab,

Hand to genital contact typically carries little if any risk for STDs. No one can really say there is no risk, but the scenario you describe is not one to worry over.

Any type of genital-to-genital or anal contact, even without penetration, is a risk for STDs though. That's why we recommend using condoms before any sexual contact like that takes place. Oral sex is a risk for some STDs, too.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Fredo

so I am worrying for nothing, is that correct? I am extremely depressed over this. I know no one has ever gotten HIV from a hand job. Just his fingers lightly brushed my penis. Must be my anxiety going into overdrive.

I think you summed it up nicely! :)
