Can I get oral hsv1 from kissing someone with my mouth closed? Can I get it from drinking after someone? What about sharing toothbrushes?
Don't obsess!!: Don't obsess over hsv1. The potential to be exposed to it is very high, so high that by age 27 you probably have already been exposed and don't even know it! While you shouldn't be kissing someone with any type of active virus, drink out of the same glass won't cause an issue and how expensive is it to purchase your own toothbrush. Certainly cheaper that seeing a psychiatrist! ...Read more

My wife has a cold. Can I catch it by sharing a toothbrush with her, even if we dip the toothbrush in mouthwash between uses?
Don'tBogartThatOrgan: That bacterium requires a nice warm moist place to hang out. In the throat that is generally way in the back, so it would take quite an effort to get it on the draw end of a cigarette. Same for a toilet seat or a door knob or the floor shift of your '84 Malibu (well, in most cases). Also, it requires the right type of acceptable tissue to jump on to--again, a nice moist and warm place. Feel better? ...Read more
Less Likely: If you share a drink or a cigarett with someone who has oral gonorrhea its unlikely (but not impossible) for transmission to occur. As far as I know, no case like this has ever been documented so it would be pretty rare. I'd still be careful about this because there are other infections that do easily transmit in this way such as oral herpes and Mono. Best wishes! ...Read more
Get tested: If you don't think you fell victim to a prank, you may want to have a swab done from your pharynx. I think the likelihood is low, but the only way to be sure is by getting tested. ...Read more

Gonrrhea: I would assume you can pass it that way be careful ...Read more
Very unlikely: Fortunately, the viability of HIV is very short lived outside of the body and is not contagious once exposed to air and surfaces that dry. There would be some minimal risk if the brush was used immediately after an infected person brushed with it by another. Virtually little to no risk if there was some significant time. ...Read more
