ask: STIs by grinding with thin underwear on

By Anonymous

i had an intimate encounter recently with a man i don't know well but who is sexually active with multiple partners. several times over the course of the night, there was grinding with his boxers and my (very thin mesh, skimpy/thin cut) underwear on, sometimes with my genetalia area grinding against his thigh. he fingered me over my clitoral region with underwear on, through the very porous mesh, to climax several times. he also fingered me briefly with his fingers inside my panties. i am curious what my risk is through this behavior for herpes and hpv.

yes, i understand. i was concerned about the area in my genital region not covered by the skimpy underwear, as it was rubbing up against his upper inner thighs at times, and possibly once or twice his penis slipped out of the boxers. i was concerned because i'm not sure my skimpy underwear really counts as a "layer."

HI Anonymous,

To get STIs, you must be skin to skin contact. It sounds like he had clothes on and so did you so you should be fine. You cannot get STIs by hand stimulation. Does that help answer your question?
