MSM Frottage

What level of concern should I have for contracting syphilis or genital warts from heavy penis on penis rubbing? I've seen some sites where it says 'theoretical' and others where it says 'some risk'... others refer to it as 'safe sex'... is it worth worrying about or getting tested over?

The other concern is of course herpes.

I should also say that I showered and washed my genital region several minutes after contact.

Thanks

Not worth the worry or testing at this point.

Thanks, Vance. You'd consider it low risk activity?

Very low, unless other person had a bunch of bumps on this gential (genital) area.

Nothing that I saw in regard to bumps. He had a dry white discoloration in one part that did not look like a hurt or a wound. I assumed it to be just part of his skin.

Sounds okay? He said he hasn't been with anyone since 2008. And before that he had a fairly steady boyfriend.

But some people don't tell the truth.

Just ignore it?
