Is it possible to catch an std from somebody without having sex with them?

by Rachel on March 21, 2011

If they come to your house almost daily use the same toilets as you, touch the food that you eat or cough on you, can you catch an std or venereal disease from them?

Consuming the correct food is important for your health. You can try supplementing your diet with acai berry, it is not solely a widely tested and acknowledged weight loss compound, it is a superfood too. There’s a risk free trial available at I have been using it for 3 weeks now and it’s definately having an effect!!

Some Std’s are transmistted from skin to skin contact. However HIV and the more serious ones are from sex only. Keep in mind HIV can only live outside the body for 8 seconds. You cannot get HIV from tears, touching, hugging, shaking hands, or kissing. So I am told. I have serious doubts that you cannot get HIV from kissing if one of you has bleeding gums….

Totally possible.

You can get STDs from something as simple as skin contact that doesn’t include sex or from sharing needles to inject yourself with drugs.

From sharing toilets, touching food, or coughing . . . very unlikely. Though I guess you might be able to catch oral herpes from sharing food . . .

Yes it is possible. Some std’s can be transmitted from skin to skin contact. So it is entirely possible.
If you want more info on this, I would go to simplestedtesting .com
