Can I get chlamydia from naked touching and contact with no

Customer Question

Can I get chlamydia from naked touching and contact with no penetration such as grinding (penis is touching anal area in an up/down motion)?I know that it is transmittable though anal, oral, and vaginal sex, but there is not a lot of information on if it is transmitted through general naked contact.

According to CDC, chlamydia is transmitted through sexual contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus of an infected partner. Ejaculation does not have to occur for chlamydia to be transmitted or acquired. It is possible that the contact of the penis with the anus transmits it.
