Hunter, Although there are a number of diseases both bacterial and viral and parasitic that humans can get from domesticated animals, human STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) are exclusive to humans. These infections do not transmit to other animals (except maybe some two-legged domesticated humans). Other mammal STDs do not transmit to people but do exist and spread by same animal type sexual transmission such as Chlamydia.Quelle(n): vet medicine

Yes, you can get all sorts of weird things like Brucellosis (from goats and dogs especially), Leptospirosis, Q fever, Rabies (VERY bad!), various tapeworms and other parasites, and several types of bacterial infections... just to name a few. Primates aren't the only ones that can pass on a zoonotic disease through sexual contact. (A zoonotic disease is a disease that can be passed from animals to humans, and vice versa.)
Added: Here's a more comprehensive but NOT complete list of zoonotic diseases-- humans may catch any or all of these-- not all species carry these diseases, but humans can catch them:
Barmah Forest virus
Bolivian hemorrhagic fever
Borrelia (Lyme disease and others)
Borna virus infection
Cat Scratch Disease
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD), a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) from bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or "mad cow disease"
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever
Cutaneous larva migrans
Escherichia coli O157:H7
Eastern equine encephalitis virus
Western equine encephalitis virus
Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus
Korean hemorrhagic fever
Kyasanur forest disease
Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus
Mediterranean spotted fever
Ocular larva migrans
Omsk hemorrhagic fever
Orf (animal disease
Psittacosis, or "parrot fever"
Rift Valley fever
Ringworms (Tinea canis)
Tularemia, or "rabbit fever"
Typhus of Rickettsiae
Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever
Visceral larva migrans
West Nile virus

It would not. that's interesting to look back 30-60 years interior the US, while the question of inter-racial marriage became being debated. you will locate that maximum folk of christian church homes interior the US antagonistic legalizing inter-racial marriages...and that they used the *precise comparable* arguments (consisting of the "slippery slope" ones) then that they now use against comparable-intercourse marriage. no longer a one in all their stupid arguments performed out then, of course demonstrating they have been all invalid, yet they nonetheless look to think of they are sturdy arguments. They rarely if ever learn something from historic previous (generally via fact they are unaware of it). Peace.

then why do you want to know?
anyways, animals have STDs like humans, but im not completely sure if they can "transfer"......
the most likely ones that you might get would be from primates, but why do you want to know?
