Yes. The pathogens (bacteria, etc.) need to get into the healthy person, to catch the diseases. This can happen through sexual intercourse, but also through contact of other bodily fluids. For example, HIV is often passed by using injection needles for more than one person (as in drug addicts, or in vaccinations if proper precautions are not taken).
