10. Which STDs are frequently spread by people using public toilet seats?
With intact skin on the back of your legs (where your body is in direct contact with the toilet seat), it is virtually impossible to contract ANY STD from a dry toilet seat! (Simply wipe it dry with toilet paper if there is fluid on it.) Most STDs die when the secretions containing them dry up, and they also require entry into the body via mucus membranes (mouth, vagina or anus), so it would involve much more than sitting on a toilet to transmit these diseases.
