Customer Question

Customer: Just curious if someone used a clitoris vibrator that was used the night before could it contain any live bacteria if it was dry. I would say it was used 4 hours at least earlier..
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Would any live bacteria still be on a clitoris stimulator used 4 hours earlier and it was dry?

This is Dr. David

there are normal benign bacteria on all surfaces on our skin and objects.

but most bacteria are not dangerous and don't cause infections.

drying the vibrator for 4 hours would kill most bacteria

I think you are asking if this vibrator could spread a sexually transmitted disease like chlamydia or gonorrhea or syphilis if used 4 hours before and chances are that it would not spread an infection like this after it was dried for 4 hours.

best to wash sex toys with soap and water after use and before use.

but I would not stress about contracting an STD from a vibrator used 4 hours before

let me know if you have other questions.

Hi thank you for the reply. So to confirm I should not have anything to worry about? It was a toy that a female used on her clitoris and I used on my balls and anus at least 4 hours later. Sorry I am paranoid because I am married and made a mistake even having any interaction with someone else. We did not have intercourse or oral or anything I helped to masterbate her and she used the toy. She forgot the toy and for whatever reason I decided to use it the next morning. Please confirm I have nothing to worry about. Thank you in advance.
