Our expert says:
Some infections labeled as STIs can be transmitted by direct skin contact. Herpes simplex and Human Papilloma virus are both examples. However, you will usually be able to see if someone has sores from herpes simplex or warts from human papilloma virus on their hands, so the risk is really low to pick it up with sensual massage. Just ensure that they always wash their hands before massaging you.
