Response from Men's Sexual Health:
A staph infection is not classed as an Sexually Transmitted Infection, Staph is a bacteria that lives on many skin surfaces harmlessly, particularly around the nose, mouth, genitals and anus. If the skin is broken or damaged it can get into the wound and cause an infection.
Staph bacteria is often spread through skin to skin contact. So whilst it is not an STI it can be spread through the bodily contact during sex.
If you have further doubts please speak with your GP.
