You can still get sexually transmitted diseases even if you don't have sex. Because there are a number of things that can be tools for the spread of sexual diseases that you have never thought of. One of them is through the use of sex toys. For some singles and couples, involving sex toys in sexual activity can add to satisfaction in bed. But beware, the use of sex toys that are not hygienic, careless, or even used alternately can transmit infectious sexually transmitted diseases. Why is that, and what infectious diseases can be a risk for sex toys?
How can sex toys transmit sexual diseases?
Sexually transmitted diseases are one of the risks of sex toys. But this must be clarified. Not the sex toys that make you risk being exposed, but a sex toy can be a medium for the spread of disease from infected penis fluids or vagina and still attached to the toy.
A study from journal Sexually Transmitted Infections conducted research focusing on women between 18 and 29 years. The women studied were women who had had sexual relations. The researchers gave each person a cleaning product, a vibrator made of thermoplastics elastomers, and a vibrator made of soft silicon.
The female participants were asked to use the vibrator for masturbation and were examined 24 hours later.The results were found that 75% of these women had HPV (human paviloma virus). Then on 9 vibrators belonging to a woman who is positive for HPV, signs of a virus are found.
The increased risk of the spread of this disease is especially high when sex toys are used by the next person without being washed first from the previous activity. Hthe principle is different when the sex toy is cleaned and sterilized every time you use it. In fact, when it's cleaned, the risk of settling the virus on the vibrator decreases to 56 percent. In addition, the researchers also found that silicon vibrators have a lower level of virus detection. Now, imagine if the vibrator that is not cleaned is used alternately. Of course the virus attached to the vibrator will spread to the users.

The most common symptom of chlamydia is pain in the genitals and discharge from the vagina or penis. But chlamydia rarely shows symptoms, so you may never know that you have contracted the disease.
Chlamydia can infect the cervix, anus, urethra, eyes and throat. Chlamydia is commonly found in men and women over the age of 25 years. And one spread can be through the use of sex toys that are not clean.
Syphilis is a venereal disease caused by bacteria that can infect the skin, mouth, genitals, and nervous system. Syphilis is also known as the king of lions.
