how easy is it for precum to soak through someone's jeans? I am afraid that I may have masterbated myself with someone else's precum in this manner. If i did have a tiny bit of siemen on my hand and i touched my own penis, how much of a threat do i have from std's of any kind?

I'd love to help with your medical questions. I'll never give you answers that I wouldn't give to my own patients or family.
Are you available to chat?
So let me get a little bit more information, if you don't mind.
So the semen was on your skin, or on your jeans?
i was rubbing someone else's crotch over their jeans
i don't even know if i got anything on me or not
And then afterwards you touched yourself?
At any point, did you touch his bare penis?
Okay. Let me tell you what I think, and why.
I think your risk is VERY low.
Not zero... but awfully close to it.
that is good
There are two ways that STDs get transmitted.
Some germs live in the semen...
...others live on the skin.
The ones that live in the semen would need to come in contact with the moist surfaces of your penis (i.e., the urethra or inside tube) to infect you.
I think that's highly unlikely from what you're describing.
It takes a good bit of fluid to infect you that way.
The other types of STDs infect by skin to skin contact.
i didn't touch the tip of my penis
just the shaft
These are things like the virus that causes genital warts, for example.
But if you did not touch your partner's penis, you should not have had contact with those things.
So I really think you have nothing to worry about from this encounter.
thank you so much for your help
If you have had risky sexual behavior in the past and haven't been tested - I'd recommend doing it, though!
But I think you don't need to worry about this encounter.
What else can I help with?
i have one question
this does put my mind at ease, if i don't notice any symptoms or changes in my body, would you recommend that i just move on and forget about this incident?
i have been tested prior to this incident
and have not been with anyone since my testing
I think you're right - you can move on.
I think your risk from this is essentially zero.
well, then thank you doctor
You are very welcome!
that is great to hear
Is there anything else I can help you with?
love that people have the technology to get advice this quickly
that is all i need
I'm happy that I could help.
