Can you get a STI if you partner fingers your vagina without gloves, but they still wash there hands.

Hi Shysinger,

Yes, while manual sex poses far less risk of infection than intercourse or oral sex do, and handwashing does a great job by itself at reducing risks, STIs can still pass from one person to another even if you've washed your hands.
