Receiving a massage is practicing safer sex; we don’t see sexually transmitted infections (STI) being passed with this type of activity.
The main thing you want to be careful with is that STI can be passed if you come in contact with some body fluids from the other person e.g. blood, vaginal fluid, semen etc… Also that some STI like herpes, genital warts and syphilis can be passed from genital to genital rubbing.
Have a look at our “Know your chances” web page, it provides information on your chances of getting or passing an STI depending on how you are having sex.
