Can I get an STD?

Jul 27, 2011

Hi, if I used a toothbrush to masturbate and some woman might have also used it to masturbate a couple of days ago, am I at risk for an STD?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Let me get this straight. You used a toothbrush to masturbate??? WOWZA! Wouldn't the tube of toothpaste be more penis/dildo shaped? I'm just sayin'.

And you're wondering if "some other woman might have also used the same toothbrush to masturbate" would put you at risk for STDs??? Hmm. Just how much action do you think the average toothbrush gets these days?

Your STD risk is nonexistent, but your choice for an artificial boyfriend remains bizarre!
