Hepatitis C is not an STD.

Do you know for a fact that this person has chronic hepatitis C?
Nationwide only 2 percent of Americans (about 4 million) are infected with chronic hepatitis C.

Can Hepatitis C be spread through sexual contact?

'Yes, but the risk of transmission from sexual contact is believed to be low. The risk increases for those who have multiple sex partners, have a sexually transmitted disease, engage in rough sex, or are infected with HIV.'

It is a blood borne virus. So unless you are exchanging blood with rough sex, blood play or some other practices involving the exchange of blood it is very unlikely  that you would be infected that way. Couples live together for decades and don't infect their partner.

Practicing safe sex, as all responsible adults that are having sex with multiple partners should be, would all be eliminate having to worry about  any STDs that that are transmitted through sexual practices.
