Hi cheeto_s. No, it is not true that you can contract an STI or anything like that from a toilet seat.

Here are some good articles to start with on the road to getting informed about STIs:
Misconception Mayhem: Separating STI Myths from Facts
STI Risk Assessment: The Cliff's Notes
Without Sexual Contact Could I Have an STI?
Safe, Sound & Sexy: A Safer Sex How-To

Hope that helps! [Smile]
