How are STIs spread?

You can get an STI by having sex (vaginal, anal or oral) with someone who has an STI. Anyone who is sexually active can get an STI. You don't even have to "go all the way" (have anal or vaginal sex) to get an STI, since some STIs, like herpes and genital warts, are spread by skin-to-skin contact.
