The toilet has a bad reputation for being the silent culprit that passes sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) from one bathroom goer to the next one, but is this really the case? In a recent article, this “urban legend” is discussed. Although a large majority of women do not sit on public toilet seats in fear of catching diseases, their fears are unfounded.
As a person with lots of experience in Public Health, I still hear this excuse almost daily said Sergio Cortes. It is amazing to me how many people will believe absurdities to avoid the emotional pain associated with the end of a relationship. Many clients have sworn off public toilets forever once receiving an STD from a partner. I always wonder what the cheating partner will use as an excuse once the toilet is no longer a suspect.
