Mpox is not a sexually transmitted disease. Mpox is mostly transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, which includes sex, but can also spread through hugging, kissing, cuddling, etc.
Scientists are still learning whether mpox can spread through semen and vaginal fluids.
Out of caution, Red Door recommends that people consider safe sex practices to reduce fluid exchange (condom use, withdrawal, non-penetrative sexual activities) for eight to 12 weeks after mpox skin lesions have completely healed over.
