help please
Hi there i go to a school where we are not given thouroughsex education eg how one can fall pregnant,contract std's and HIV. I am a prefect at my school and have alot of kids coming to confide in me and ask me for advice. I feel I am the only person they have and would like to help in the slightest possible way-i have however not gone for any training so I thought perhaps posting their questions on the forum would be a great help.I have spoken to my school and they have agreed to send me for training but only in mid august.Here are 2 of the many queries i have piling up:

Problem1:Young girl-Std 8
my boyfriend and i have agreed not to have sex. I wanted to know if he pleasured me with his fingers after having touched himself could I fall pregnant and if his penis rubbed against my vagina as if we were having sex but i had my underwear on is there a possiblity of me falling pregnant,contracting aids or std's-can that only happen with full intercourse?

Problem 2: Boy-Std9/matric
When my girlfriend and i are sharing an intimate moment and i touch her vagina she feels wet-the same thing also happens to me-what is this fluid?can HIV and std's be spread throuh these fliuds or only if we ejaculated?Could my girlfriend fall pregnant if this fluid touched her vagina even if she wore underwear

Problem 1.
You can contract STD s like this. It will be a bit more difficult to fall pregnant.

Problem 2.

This fluid is called precum. and acts as a lubricant to lubricate the genitals for intercourse. You can contract sexually trasnsmitted diseases this way. This is also the case with HIV
