    Can I pass on a STD from someone else touching my laptop after I masturbate?

    See I get paranoid because I watch porn while I masturbate. So I am like scrolling through my laptop and surfing the web and what not, but when I am done I wash my hands yet I do not wipe down my laptop. So now I am paranoid because maybe I could have passed on an STD. I doubt I have any but like isn't that bad that I do not clean my laptop? I practice safe sex and there was no bodily fluids on my laptop when the person used it and hour and a half later. .-. >.<;;
    I researched and saw that STDs do not live outside the body longer than an hour. Well someone used my laptop like an hour and a half after I got done, but like half of that time my laptop was in my backpack, closed, I was bike riding, so.... Is that person at risk of anything bad happening?
    And well I do not know if I have an STD. I practice safe sex and use protection, but just have been in some sketchy situations. So yeah .-. and there was no bodily fluid on my computer when the person used it. It was all dry.
    Detailed answers with references and citations would be greatly appreciated >.<;;

    These events pose absolutely NO risk to anyone using the computer after you.

    However, if you are so concerned about spreading an STD isn't it time YOU got tested for these?

    You do not know how relieved I am to hear that. Thank you.
    And yes I am working on that since I do not have a lot of money and still young. I just turned 18. But yes, I will get tested. Thank you very much Gail. I appreciate it very much.
