    My wife and I recently met another couple...we all ended up ""playing"" with each other...but...ONLY hand..and toy stimulation...All of us achieved orgasms...and...my question was....can you get a std from hands only (no gloves..bare hand) mutual masturbation...girl/girl..guy/guy..??? ..I ask because...I now have slight redness on the head..and slightly under the head of my penis...No pain...no secretion from it......Perhaps its just from "playing" so much....Can a "expert" ease my mind a bit..??
    TIA!!

    No, you cannot get an STD from someone masturbating you.

    Were the toys "shared" between couples? If not, then no, there is no risk.

    No toys were "shared"...simply used on each other...never ""passed around""....So Gail...if I understand you correctly...even if the girl had "juices""...or guy had..."pre-cum"..on their hand....mutual masturbation is a safe practice..??

    Yes, simply getting vaginal fluids or precum on hands only is not a risk for STD transmission (assuming this couple even had any STD).
