I ended up alone with a guy in his apartment....
We started kissing then the kisses got deeper...and one thing lead to another...we ended up on his bed....he gave me oral and then we proceeded to dry hump eachother.
We did not actually have intercourse....but then we ened up in the shower...still rubbing on eachother and he did orgasm...but we still did not have intercourse....
He said that he is clean....I know I am....but...What have I exposed myself too? besides the thought of.... What in the hell did I just do?

Very true Siskiyou,

It's important to monitored your body of any symptoms and if in doubt, it's best to talk to your doctor and get tested for STD's.

Hope we can help and keep us posted,

I think what Daisy said is completely true...get tested. BUT...I think what the person asking the question is so typical and average how many people feel.
We all want to believe that who we chose for our sexual partners is a clean, safe partner..even if a 1 night stand. Especially if the person looks nice, is clean and treat you respectfully.to have unprotected sex...get tested. It will save so much heart
The reality is....is it worth losing your life...not being able to have children later on in life because you do not want to face the reality of STD in our society today?
Of course not! So get tested....carry condoms just in case and if you ache later on...or even your life if you let things just go as is and they get too advanced.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. That's definitely a big concern. One reason STDs spread is because people think they can only be infected if they have sexual intercourse. That's wrong. A person can get some STDs, like herpes or genital warts, through skin-to-skin contact with an infected area or sore.

Another myth about STDs is that you can't get them if you have oral or anal sex. That's also wrong because the viruses or bacteria that cause STDs can enter the body through tiny cuts or tears in the mouth and anus, as well as the genitals.

STDs also spread easily because you can't tell whether someone has an infection. In fact, some people with STDs don't even know that they have them. These people are in danger of passing an infection on to their sex partners without even realizing it.

Chances are he might be telling the truth about him being clean. But if you feel you might have been exposed to STD you should see your doctor immediately.
Here's a link on STD that will help.

Best of luck,
