Sexually transmitted diseases or STDs mostly occur due to unsafe sxual practices.

However, it is incorrect to hold sx accountable for these infections every time you contract it.

There are several other ways you can get sxually transmitted infection even without having penetrative sx.

1. Kissing

Kissing can help transmit o**l h****s-HSV 1, genital h****s-HSV 2, Cytomegalovirus, and Syphilis.

The golden rule is if you have cold sores in your mouth, do not engage in kissing. The saliva can be a carrier of the infection-causing pathogens.

2. ​O**l sx​

O**l sx has always been seen as a higher risk of transmitting infection. Despite being unsafe it is one of the most common forms of sx these days.

Chlamydia and gonorrhoea are spread through o**l sx. This also poses a risk for syphilis and genital h****s if there is a blister or sore in the genital area which goes unnoticed.

3. ​O**l n****e stimulation​

This is another threat factor for xually transmitted diseases. Make sure not to make any skin to skin contact with a person if you notice warts or sore.

4. Sharing toothbrush​

The risk of getting a xually transmitted disease through using someone’s toothbrush is nearly the same as getting it through o**l sx.

While brushing the teeth there are chances of toothbrushing getting contaminated with blood from the mouth. When this brush is used by someone else, it actively transfers the pathogens to the other person.

5. ​Blood transfusion​

Though it took a long time for people to accept that AIDS can also be spread through blood transfusion, it is a fact that several STDs can happen due to faulty blood transfusion.

Whenever you are going for blood transfusion make sure to collect it from a trusted blood bank and verify it.

6. Sharing sx toys

Like said before, sx toys are one of the non-traditional methods of getting satisfaction.

Using someone else sx toys can pass STDs conveniently. Also, if you are using it single handedly, make sure to clean it properly after every use and keep it in a hygiene place.

Why is it important to know this?

It is important to know this aspect of STDs because many people find it very arousing to engage in non-penetrative sxual activities. The need and satisfaction requirements of people in sx varies from individual to individual. This leads to exploring newer and non-traditional ways of getting o****m.

Sometimes hygiene is ignored when there is no p*********n. It is wrongly believed that only intercourse has a risk of hygiene.

However, with the knowledge of the STDs mentioned above one can be aware of the risks and take care.
