Syphilis is a cheeky little bugger. Syphilis likes penetrative sex (bottom or top) and also oral sex (giving/getting head). Sexual contact may put you at risk of Syphilis

(This could include rubbing genitals together). 

If left untreated, Syphilis does not remain localised and spreads to other areas of the body. Syphilis is infectious to your sexual partners during the primary and secondary stages.
