Transmission from inanimate objects

May 11, 2005

I use to masturbate by rubbing my penis on inanimate objects like bed sheets and other sorts of cloth. What are the chances of getting an STD from this kind of activity? Please advise.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Problems from this kind of activity? Perhaps tallywhacker rug burn and chafing, maybe some lint in your one-eyed monster, but STDs? No.
