I was recently diagnosed with gonorrhoea and my wife also.We both know, we haven’t cheated and I was doing some research.It says it’s a bacteria that can grow and can be transmitted from dirty sex toys or dirty hands.My question is, if you do not clean off the sex toy such as vibrator, can the bacteria grow on it and then once you use it again, can you contract the bacteria giving you gonorrhoea?
If you use a sex toy in your butt and then use it in your own vagina (or around your penile opening), this can also result in one of these infections.
Transmission of chlamydia is more likely to occur if you insert them into your body (as opposed to not inserting the sex toy during use) or if they’re made from a highly porous material (such as neoprene, vinyl, acrylic, or thermoplastic), as bodily fluids are more likely to remain on the toy. Furthermore, if you share your sex toys with a partner without cleaning them, it can increase the risk of spreading chlamydia and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) to each other.
Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection that is spread through unprotected oral, vaginal or anal sex with an infected partner, including through mutual masturbation and sharing of sex toys. Penetration and ejaculation are not required for transmission.
Maybe their partner put their fingers in their butt, or they shared a sex toy. You can get a rectal gonorrhea infection even if you don’t bottom. The infection can even spread from your penis to your butt because they are so close to each other.
Wash cyberskin and vinyl toys delicately with warm water only. Air dry and powder a small amount with cornstarch to keep them from getting sticky. Nylon: Nylon harnesses and toys can be machine or hand washed with a mild anti-bacterial soap.
There is an increased risk of bacterial vaginosis in women who have sex with women who have a history of sharing sex toys, or whose partners have bacterial vaginosis. Avoiding blood-borne infections Do not share any sex toy that may draw blood from the skin, as this type of sex toy can pass on blood borne infections.
Tossing your vibrator or other sex toy in a drawer when you're done using it can set you up for bacterial vaginosis or even an STD.
Furthermore, thoroughly wash sex toys after each use, and never let anyone borrow them. Note that alternative forms of contraception like birth control pills and implants provide absolutely no protection from resistant gonorrhea or other STIs.
Honestly, a gonorrhea diagnosis is pretty much NBD. Usually all you need is a round of antibiotics to wipe it out of your system and move on with your (sex) life.
