Is there any way to get an STD from giving a handjob? I gave my boyfriend a handjob, and I'm wondering if there is anyway that I could've caught a disease...

Check out the Quickie STD/STI Risk Assessment.

Unprotected manual sex is comparatively low risk compared to other unprotected sexual activities, but it does create a risk for transmission of some STDs, especially if either of you has any cuts or sores on your skin.

Here at Scarleteen we recommend that you practice safer sex by using a latex glove (or a condom) and water-based lube during manual sex. It's not only safer, it's also more comfortable and much more fun - smooth and slippery instead of dry and rough .
