Our expert says:
A condom protects you very well against STD's (but it is not 100% fail proof as condoms can be defective). However this is 100% safer than having sex without one! If you finger your partner without a condom and she has a STD like herpes you can still catch it and get a herpes infection on the fingers. Other STD's will probably not be a huge risk without penetrating sex.
