Can you get aids from shoving a hotel toilet paper holder up your ass

Oct 3, 2012

Can some one get aids from shoving a hotel toilet paper holder up their butt? I have felt sick afterward please help

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

The answer to your question is no. You cannot get HIV from putting a toilet paper holder in your rectum. The H in HIV stands for Human; the virus needs a human host to survive. It cannot live on inanimate objects such as toilet paper holders, towels, combs, etc. I hope this helps.

In health,


Can hiv be transmitted through an electric shaver?
Could this be Syphillis or HIV and how soon after contraction can I be contagious?
