I was just wondering if I am a virgin in all ways do I need to protect myself if I give a guy a hand job? Does it put me at risk for any STD's or anything? And what about if he fingers me?

Unprotected manual sex for you, as the giver, since your only contact is your hand, doesn't carry any risks to fret over for you, and because penises work differently than vaginas when it comes to some trypes of transmission, there are also very low risks for your male partner.

For you as a receptive partner of manual sex, however, there are greater risks, even though they're still not huge (mainly, risks of bacterial infection). In either case, so long as each of you just simply washes your hands beforehand, you're protected very well. Latex gloves give an extra boost of protection, but really aren't that much more protective than simple handwashing.
