    Sorry but this is the funniest thing I have ever heard lol.

    I don't think you can catch hiv unsure about chlaymidia and think you could get staph or herpes but I'm not a health care proffesional so just a guess ,

    Sorry for funding funny just think it's mad why you was snooping to find that of a relative uses this was this like your auntie or something? 😳

    All depends on how clean the person is to whether it would hold stis but I also think that they carnt live on objects like that or toilet seats or we'd all be infected think they die of so long after being out the body don't take me for gospel tho x

    Unless the vibrator was used within the four to five hours before you had contact with it and keep in a moist environment, you don't need to worry. Inert objects or fomites have never transmitted HIV and only in the above, rare, circumstances been shown to be the source of transmission of chlamydia and herpes etc.

    No STD has ever been transmitted the way you suggest. Some require skin contact but you usually need to exchange body fluids. 

    And very few bacteria/viruses survive once they're exposed to air. Some of them like herpes may be an exception but again, you need " body contact" with "someone", not "something". 

    Additionally, your antibodies are working right now to fight off an infection even if it really happened. 

    Most STDs, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, and genital warts are spread only through direct sexual contact with an infected person. Crabs (pubic lice) or scabies, which are often sexually transmitted, can be passed through contact with infested items like clothes, sheets, or towels. 

    But viruses are fragile and tend to die immediately once they leave the skin of the infected person. 

    This is not an STD concern. I wouldn't mind testing since there was no real risk.

    Stay safe and take care.

      Despite the above being generally true, studies have shown that both chlamydial viral particles and herpes virus can live in detectable (50% inital count) amounts on plastic surfaces in humid or moist environments for up to 4-5 hours. This does raise the concern of transmission of shared vibrators during the sex act. More theoretical and certainly does not apply to this poor fellow!

      true but OP has antibodies working to fight off infection like all humans do. 

      you'd be surprised to know how easy we'd be acquiring all sorts of infections, even syphilis from inanimate objects if it weren't for our adaptive antibodies in correlation with the unfavorable environment. 

      Overall, it just doesn't happen this way. You have a better chance of jumping off the Brooklyn bridge and survive than acquiring any sort of disease this way. 

      Of course, if OP inserted the dildo in his anus that changs the scenario, but only by a very slight bit because it's still an inanimate object.
