The possibility of getting STDs is very much a part of sex as having fun is. There is no predilection as to which gender can these diseases affect more. STD in men is just as common as STD in women. Listed below are some of the most common sexually-transmitted infections that affect sexually active men.
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infection
Almost every sexually active individual has or have had HPV at some point, making it the most common STD not just in the US, but also worldwide. This can be acquired through oral, vaginal, or anal sex, and even through simple skin-to-skin contact. This STD usually has no signs and symptoms and in most cases, causes no harm. However, some types of HPV can cause genital warts, while others can cause cancer of the mouth, throat, cervix, and penis.
