This is sort of a complicated situation but let me see if I can summarize the important points. A few nights ago I was involved in a threesome with two other friends (one male, one female- I'm male) and after I fell asleep, they had sex. As I found out later despite the fact that I had found some condoms for them, they did it completely unprotected. The girl was a virgin and was on birth control, the guy had only had sex one time previously- to a 27 year old woman whose name he doesn't remember - and, he admitted to me recently that he had not used a condom the whole time with her either. "And it's so much better!" he says.... I almost slapped him.

Then I asked him if he'd considered the possibility that he picked up something from unnamed 27 year old and passed it on to my friend. He just looks at me blankly. (The girl involved in the threesome did not know about the 27 year old as you might imagine). The bottom line is they realized eventually how incredibly stupid they had been and I've convinced them to get fully tested for STI's ASAP. The girl went to tSTD yesterday, and the guy is going to planned parenthood today. But I was talking to someone else about this recently and they said that since the guy has donated blood at blood drives several times since his first encounter and risk of infection, they would have tested the blood and he'd know if he had something. Is there ANY truth to that?

He's getting tested anyway, but nonetheless it would be nice if that could provide a little peace of mind in the meantime. Also, should I get tested? I had unprotected oral sex with her the morning after and then protected vaginal intercourse... I've only had one partner before and she was a virgin. Are there any STIs you can get from oral sex if you're on the receiving end? Sorry to ask so many questions but this has been on my mind quite a bit lately. Thanks in advance for your answers.

In general, having regular STD check-ups is a good habit to get in when you're sexually active, not something you do when you think you've put yourself at a particularly high risk. There are always risks involved and it's just better for your health and that of others involved if you make sure to get tested on a regular basis.

So, yes, all three of you have had risks since all three of you engaged in unprotected sex. And since this also means all three of you are sexually active, you should all get tested.
