If one is prone to cheek/lip biting, what is the possibility of contracting an std (herpes, hpv) through sharing a cigarette with an infected person?

If one is prone to cheek/lip biting, what is the possibility of contracting an std (herpes, hpv) through sharing a cigarette with an infected person?

Zero risk: Nobody ever catches any STDs by sharing cigarettes or other oral exposures. Even kissing is no risk, except for oral herpes due to HSV1 (which isn't considered an STD) -- and even this is uncommon. Sores in your mouth make no difference at all. They call them "sexually transmitted" for good reason. Choose partners wisely and have safe sex -- that's all you need to do to avoid all STDs! ...Read more

Can STDs be spread from sharing eating utensils with people while eating?

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. ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more
