Well, the other day I was talking to my buddy about sex toys, and whether you can get syphilis from them. I never knew if this were possible and it really got me thinking. The whole thing is a bit of a minefield, especially if you don’t know what you’re talking about.
So, can you get syphilis from sex toys? In short, the answer is no. Syphilis is caused by a bacterium, not a virus, which means it is not spread through contact with objects or surfaces. That said, it can, however, still be transmitted through skin contact. So, if you use a sex toy that someone else has, and they have any open lesions or sores on their skin, then you are potentially at risk of catching the bacteria and developing the disease.
That said, it is still relatively low risk due to the nature of the bacteria itself. It is only usually spread by direct contact with an infected person, and not through casual sexual contact. The chances of coming into contact with an infected person by way of a sex toy is, therefore, extremely low.
However, it’s still important to stay vigilant and take necessary precautions to avoid getting infected. For starters, always use protective barriers between yourself and any partners when using sex toys. This could be condoms, female condoms or dental dams. These will help reduce the chances of contact with someone else’s bodily fluids.
Another way to stay safe is to make sure you never share your sex toys with anyone else. It’s important to keep them clean and stored away from any malicious bacteria at all times. It’s relatively easy for bacteria to live on these surfaces for quite some time, so make sure you take necessary steps to ensure that your toys stay as hygienic as possible.
Another way to reduce the risk is to make sure you stick to products that are specifically made and designed to be used with sex. Avoid anything that is not specifically made and designed to be used for sexual pleasure, as it can contain harmful bacteria which could be potentially transmitted to you.
Finally, Penis Rings make sure you make an effort to become educated and informed about any potential risks associated with using sex toys. For instance, it’s a good idea to talk to your partner about any underlying medical conditions they may have, so that you can be aware of any potential risks.
OK, so that was a bit of a whirlwind when it comes to the topic of sex dolls toys and syphilis. But I think it’s important to stay educated and informed. You never know when it might come in handy, and this is just one way to reduce risk and stay safe.
