    contracting stds from sex toys?
    snowqueen12 posted:
    Can you contract an std from a sex toy ( ie. a dildo)? If my partner had used a sex toy a couple days prior to me can I contract a virus from it if it wasn't used for a couple of days? do std's survive on surfaces long? can you kill the viruse with rubbing alcohol? HOT soapy water?
    Georgiagail responded:
    No; even assuming your partner carried an STD, using a dildo days after they did would not transmit any STD to you.

    Nice way to sneak in SPAM.
