can you catch chlamydia or gonorrhea through the sharing of towels, soaps, or toilet seats?

It would be...: Difficult since they are bacteria that like to live inside cells. So it is hard for someone to get a big dose of the bacteria by casual contact. Still, don't use strange towels or toilet because you can get other infections from these items. Good luck!
