No, but...: No is the real-life answer. That's because although there's a finite theoretical risk everywhere on Earth... we in real-life don't worry about catching sexually transmitted diseases from soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, etc. To be safest in public bathrooms, one can rinse off after touching soap dispensers or faucet handles, dry hands with a paper towel, grab the door handle with the towel.
No, but...: No is the real-life answer. That's because although there's a finite theoretical risk everywhere on Earth... we in real-life don't worry about catching sexually transmitted diseases from French fries, hash browns, baked potatoes, or other similar foods.

Can you get ANY type of STD by sharing (drinking) a cup of water with someone that was recently diagnosed with an std?
ANY: ALL, no. ANY, certainly. Herpes comes to mind.

Swapping saliva?: Any activity that can involve the exchange of saliva can potentially spread an std. Conditions have to be "right, " though. For example, the one person would have to have a lesion which is shedding the herpes virus, and the other person would have to have a portal of entry for the virus. I'm guessing your risk here is low, but couldn't say with certainty. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

Seems unlikely: I've suggested that gonorrhea (like other diseases) might be transmitted from an adult to a child in a hot tub -- gonorrhea and chlamydia can infect the eye in an unhalogenated swimming pool -- and it seems remotely possible that gonorrhea might travel on a fork. It would be hard to prove that this was all that happened, and nobody's going to conduct a formal experiment. Wonder why you ask.
Can herpes or any STDs spread by sharing a pipe? Smoked a bowl of weed with some kid then found out he had herpes. Should I be nervous?
Depends: Depends on whether, to some extent, it is herpesvirus I or 2. Genital herpes and oral herpes are generally different strains of the virus, although there is a little bit of overlap. If he has genital herpes and you shared a pipe, the odds are pretty low that you could acquire the same virus. If he has oral herpes, however, it is pretty catchy. There are meds, talk to your doc. Other std unlikely.
