I am 30. Male. I have a tenderness in one particular area in my pubic region (my right side), beneath the hair. It is not an itch. Rather, it feels as though the hair were pulling out the skin a little -- stretching it. I see no redness. Sometimes it feels like a bit of pressure. I had unprotected sex about 3 weeks ago. Does this sound like an std?

STD would not be an immediate thought to me but it's best to check it out to be sure. Your local health department or doctor can run tests to see if there is anything of concern.
Perhaps there is a pulled muscle or even hernia. It would be impossible to say without an examination. Good luck.
