It actually is possible if you aren't very hygienic and have come in contact with harmful things earlier in the day(s). They are now finding out that herpes and HPV can live deep under the nails of your fingers. It is very, very important to wash your hands with soap and warm water thoroughly before engaging in sexual contact with yourself or anyone else. If available, use a nailbrush to get deeper under the nail for better cleanliness. It's better to be extra-safe right now than to be extra-sorry. :)

Er... no... an STD is a Sexually TRANSMITTED Disease. That means it gets transmitted from one person to another. You need two people for that. No, that doesn't mean someone giving you a handjob would give you an STD. An STD is transmitted by, well, sex, hence the name.

nope,you cant get anything from it.

well, if your a girl and you have something potentially hazardous (some kind of chemical) on your fingers you could get an infection but other than that the answer is no. <3

You absolutely 100% per cent cannot at all get an STD from this activity. There are no risks involved here. Unless you are doing this all day for hours on end there is no medical risk at all. It's a good thing you asked misinformation is far deadlier than facts.

No, if you're masturbating by yourself you cannot get an STD or an STI. This can only happen if your with someone who has one and you have sexual contact.
Remember: Masturbating is natural and perfectly healthy, it's the safest sex you can have!

If you're on your own definitely not cos you need someone else to give you a std. However if you're with someone else and you get really really close theres a tiny risk but mainly the only ways you can get std's is through oral sex or intercourse.

No. Masturbation is between you and yourself. If you don't have an STD to begin with, you can't possibly get one from masturbation.

And no, there are no risks. No HEALTH risks at least.

There are risks from masterbating but i dont think that it is STD's though. go to a website and look up STD's and read what the causes are.
