Massage

What STDs would be transmittable through a 'happy ending' massage? If masseuse gave the same service to an infected customer immediately prior to me (and failed to wash her hands thoroughly) what is the likelihood of me contracting something? If relevant, the masseuse massaged my arms, shoulders and back for at least thirty minutes before any hand to genital contact.

No risk.  No STDs ever are transmitted by hand-genital contact.  That includes no risk even if she didn't wash hands after a previous customer.
