Can I get any sort of diseases form my boy friend fingering me??

It’s possible, but not likely. Fingering is low-risk safer sex. Here’s a breakdown of the different kinds of risks.

No-risk safer sex includes

masturbation

  • mutual masturbation

  • cybersex

  • phone sex

  • sharing fantasies

  • No infections can be passed with these kinds of sex.

    Low-risk safer sex includes

  • kissing

  • fondling — manual stimulation, including fingering, of one another

  • body-to-body rubbing — frottage, “grinding,” or “dry humping”

  • oral sex (even safer with a condom or other barrier)

  • playing with sex toys — alone or with a partner

  • vaginal intercourse with a latex or female condom

  • anal intercourse with a latex or female condom

  • These behaviors are low risk for infections like herpes and human papilloma virus (HPV). Unprotected oral sex is also low risk for gonorrhea and syphilis. All these behaviors are very low risk for HIV/AIDS.

    The highest risk kinds of sex are

  • unprotected vaginal intercourse

  • unprotected anal intercourse

  • These behaviors are high risk for chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, HIV/AIDS, herpes, HPV, syphilis, and trichomoniasis.

    You can get pubic lice — “crabs” — or scabies from body to body contact with or without intercourse.
