Monkeypox is not a sexually transmitted disease. MPX 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 monkeypox 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 monkeypox skin lesions have completely healed over.
