i was wondering, is it possible to have an STD if you have never been sexually active with anyone before? i also wanted to know, how are males checked out for std's? what do they do to examine them? these two things are worrying me, for personal reasons. thanks

It is possible to get STDs without sexual contact. Some sexually transmitted diseases can be transmitted via means other than sexual contact. For example, herpes, hepatitis b, and some other STDs can be transmitted without sexual contact. See the Infection Section for more info on STDs.

Getting tested for STDs is a great idea, koolest! We have an article all about testing, and it includes info for guys too: Testing, Testing?
