Why is sexual abstinence the only sure way to prevent the transmision of stds?

Sexual abstinence -- avoiding oral, anal, and vaginal sex, as well as avoiding skin-to-skin genital contact -- is the only sure way to prevent the transmission of STDs. Even when using condoms, these activities can spread infection. Some infections just aren't well-prevented by condoms; these are the STDs that are spread by skin-to-skin contact, like warts, herpes, molluscum, and syphilis. Since condoms can't cover all skin, there's still risk of STDs. For the infections spread by fluids (HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis), condoms reduce the risk, but can still fail, as evidenced by the number of people who get pregnant while using condoms.
