Our expert says:
Some infections labeled as STIs can be transmitted by direct skin contact like Herpes simplex and Human Papilloma virus. A person may still be able to spread the infection even if no signs of disease are present. All sexual behaviors that involve contact with another person or the bodily fluids of another person should be considered to contain some risk of transmission of sexually transmitted diseases. However, one can practice safer sexual practices by avoiding contact with someone with visible sores.
