This might sound like a weird question, but I need to know: is it safe to masturbate in the bathtub? (There's water in it, of course) I just didnt know if others used the tub after I drained the water completely that the semen would still be there or die off from the water and soap or be drained out with the water, and if it is still there, be transferred to others in any harmful way. Thanks.

it is safe to masturbate in the tub. semen can get clotty and clingy, so give the tub a good rinse afterwards.

How about for other people? If other people are to use the bathtub maybe like an hour or two afterwards, is it safe for them to use it without a risk of a harmful transmission of semen to them?

Semen really isn't that hardy; like Gumdrop said, you can rinse out the tub well after you're done, but that's more being curteous to make sure there's no semen stuck on the walls of the tub.

A person using the tub after you wouldn't be at any sort of risk because you had ejaculated in it at one point previously.

Ok, thank you both for your replies! I was getting worried about that if it harmed anyone, but now I dont have to be.
