Advisor: Help, My Junk Touched the Toilet Rim!

Advisor: Help, My Junk Touched the Toilet Rim!: JLT

JLT

Every once in a rare while, the tip of my penis accidentally touches the toilet rim. I don’t mean the seat; I mean the rim of the bowl. When this happens in the bathroom at work, I feel as though a billion germs and viruses have landed on my penis. What is the best thing I can do to clean off? Should I rub it with toilet paper? Hide in my office and put hand sanitizer on it? I don’t want to stand at the sink washing my penis.T.R., Langley, Virginia

Much has been said about the relative cleanliness of the toilet seat in comparison with the kitchen sink (a dry seat harbors few germs; a wet sink can be a bacterial breeding ground). But you present a less cut-and-dried scenario. It’s entirely possible that contact with a toilet bowl can expose your penis to many germs. But provided you don’t have an open sore on the tip of your penis and have a strong immune system, you’re probably going to be okay. (From what you say it sounds as though this has happened a few times already—and you’re doing fine.) Do not use hand sanitizer on your penis; it contains alcohol as an active agent and can burn. If you plan on having sex the same day your penis has touched a toilet, we suggest taking a nice hot soapy shower beforehand as a courtesy to your partner.
