you can not contract an STD from sitting on a toilet with urine on it.

there can be bacteria on the toilet seat

best to wash your clothes from that day in hot water and take a shower and wash with soap and water to make sure bacteria is washed off of your body

but you don't have to worry about sexually transmitted diseases

let me know if you have questions.
