Can you get genital herpes from a toilet seat?
No, you can not get genital herpes from a toilet seat. It is virtually impossible for the virus to live on inanimate objects such as a toilet seat. I've read alot on this subject and encourage you to do so too. Very unlikely to happen. When you think about it you're genitals don't touch the seat and herpes doesn't live for more then a few seconds when it's out side of the body. If you're nervous about getting some thing from a toilet use a seat protecter or cover the seat with toilet paper. It is theoretically possible to catch herpes from a toilet seat, but the likelihood is very low. The virus can't live long outside the body (minutes to only about an hour, depending on environmental conditions). No. You're very unlikely to get herpes from a toilet. Herpes doesn't last for more then a few seconds when it's in open air or on objects also when you think about it your genitals don't touch the seat which is where people commonly get break outs. Generally, no. Viruses don't live very long outside the body, and unless you have open sores are put your genital openings directly on the seat, it would be hard for the virus to get in. I teach high school sex ed and we generally tell our students that the risk is so low that you probably shouldn't even worry about it. Possible? Yes. But VERY unlikely. That is very unlikely to happen. Herpes dies with in seconds after being exposed to air.

Can you get herpes from a toilet seat?
It would be nearly impossible to get herpes from a toilet seat. You are much more likely to transmit oral herpes to your own genitals via fingers or some other object than to pick it up from a toilet seat. Most people are unaware that they have herpes, and that's why a diagnosis can seem like it came out of the blue. It is understandable that a toilet seat would seem to be a more likely explanation than the idea that the virus could have caused no noticable symptoms for years; however, the epidemiology just doesn't back up the hypothesis. With so many days of asymptomatic viral shedding, household transmission among families, including an epidemic of genital herpes in children, would be an obvious phenomenon. Herpes is common, it can be transmitted by oral sex among two people who have never had another partner, and it can be contagious when a person has no symptoms. These are much more likely explanations for herpes infection than toilet seats. I have genital herpes. According to everything I have read from the CDC and other reputable sources the herpes virus can live outside the human body for up to a few hours. Therefore, it is conceivably possible that you could catch the virus from an inatimate object such as a toilet seat, but HIGHLY unlikely. The most common transmission of the disease happens from direct sexual contact with someone infected with the virus while they are having an outbreak (meaning they currently have open or active sores or blisters) that the other sexual partner comes into contact with. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) also says that one in four women have genital herpes, and one in eight men have it as well. My recommendation is to do as much of your own research as possible, and my opinion is that you CANNOT catch herpes from a toilet seat if you at least wipe clean a toilet seat prior to using it or use a toilet seat protector. It would be nearly impossible to catch herpes from a toilet. Yes. It can remain for up to two hours on the surface. What would need to be covered up? The way a husband got it when his wife of 20 years doesn't have it, well, she didn't have it? It could be the affair he's trying to hide, but he doesn't really need to blame it on the innocent toilet, the herpes virus can lay dormant in the body for 10, 20 years and then out of nowhere have an outbreak. Not Medical Advice----Depending one what part he uses and what part you touch but normally herpes is not contagious unless you come in direct contact with it. There is a possibility that if you touch something the herpes has touched you could get it but the odds are slimmer especially if you watch up right away. Using the same toilet seat usually will not get you it unless the herpes had much contact with the toilet seat itself.

What diseases can you get from a toilet seat?
STDs are not transmitted from toilet seats. The viral and bacterial ones die on contact with the air, including HIV. You would also need a cut or sore on your butt for the bacteria or virus to get in. And really, if you saw a toilet seat covered in semen or blood would you sit down? Also, crabs cannot be transmitted by toilet seats. They need hair to hang on to and not a smooth surface like a toilet seat. Some infections can be transmitted by a toilet seat like e coli, salmonella, Hepatitis A, but again, you would need a way for those to inside you, and they prefer to travel by hands to mouth. And, anyways, in a health perspective, toilet seats are one of the most sterile places in a restroom. Most bacteria can only live 1hour to 6 hours on a surfice like that anyway.
