Can precum cause STIs if it soaks through clothes? I know it won't cause pregnancy that way, or at least it's highly unlikely to.
Is it hygienic for him to touch my panties if wetness has soaked through?
Can STIs transfer if you touch cum or precum with your skin but don't ingest it, and don't get any on your genitals or any orifices? Of course, assume I won't be touching his penis. Heck, if I did that I wouldn't take it directly off the penis. Too risky.
Once my boyfriend wrapped his boxers around his **** so I could touch it above them. But, I might have accidently touched the bare skin with a fingertip (probably not more) for about a nanosecond? How likely would this be to cause an STI?
What if he touches his own bare penis? Is it hygienic for him to continue to cuddle with me or touch anything else?
Thanks for your help.

If you haven't seen this article yet, it explains STI transmission risks for various activities: Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That?

I read it again. It only talks about ingesting fluids or getting it on genitals being a risk, so should I assume that if I don't touch his genitals or swallow but if his cum touches my skin is fine? It also doesn't describe stuff like pre-cum or wetness soaking through (though as said I know that can't cause pregnancy, I just want to know about STIs).

Thanks! So if precum/wetness soaks through if we're dry-humping, that isn't an STI risk either is it? It lists dry humping but states that it's for dry humping "without direct genital-to-genital intercourse or any possible fluid sharing because of clothing".

Fluid-transmitted diseases can only be passed and acquired through actual fluid sharing. So, if one person's genital fluids are not in contact with another person's genitals, mouth or other areas we need to be concerned with per STIs (mainly, the nose and eyes), transmission cannot occur.

Ok thanks. So indirect(through clothing isn't a risk.
