There is a basis in fact that herpes could be transmitted via an inanimate object such as a toilet seat or wet towel but the conditions required for this kind of transmission (high heat, high moisture, and a vulnerable exposure site) make it extremely unlikely. Although there are no confirmed cases of this type of transmission, sharing a towel with somebody with active lesions should be avoided. Likewise, sharing lip or mouth products (toothbrushes, lipstick, lip balm, or similar) with somebody with active lesions should be avoided.
NO the only STD you can get from the toilet is crabs! Source(s):Tyra Banks show!
no unless you just rub yourself on the toilet you are ok
Nope. unless he had an open cut on his ***.
That is why there is heath class, To teach you thing like this, My heath teacher got that same question and she laughed and then said ‘No of chase not, but if you still scared just whip off the set.’
Only if you had sex on the toilet seat with him
No. To get genital herpes you need direct skin to skin contact or you need to have sex with the person.So if he were to use to toilet, and then you used it after him, you would not get the virus. It is not direct skin to skin contact. I was worried about spreading the virus to my younger brothers when I first got it. I shared a bathroom with them for five years! Neither of them got the virus from me and we didn’t take special precautions like wiping down the seat after I used the toilet every time. You need direct skin to skin contact to contract the virus! Man or woman.
Why risk it? Take a dump at home, or squat above it. You can always Purell the seat. I always have that with.
Probably not unless the virus comes in contact with mucus membrane tissue.
ya know – i heard you could. i don’t have anything to back that up but i would be scared
