Hey, this is probably silly, but I just wanted to know. Is it dangerous If i perform oral on my fiancé, then someone accidentally eats/drinks after me like twenty mins later? I know there's mono people get, but I just wanted to know.

Btw, pregnant fears are all gone! [Smile]

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking - dangerous how?

If u r sharing the same eating utensils and there is any extra fluid in your mouth they it might get on a spoon or straw or whatever but idk if its dangerous unless theres an STD involved

The same concerns about germs would apply, whether you had engaged in oral sex or not.

To prevent germ-spreading, it is sound not to share utensils or dishes. [Smile]

Okay, thank you. I just felt bad when someone ate after me and it was too late! I just wanted to make sure it wasn't something "deadly" or could make someone terribly sick. So yeah it would be the same as regular drinking after someone.

Nodding...which isn't to say that that isn't risky, but presumably the person knew that they were using the same dishes or utensils you'd used.

As I said, the same risks would apply for germ transfer as would be there in any other situation. There's nothing you can do about it now, though. [Smile]

And by that I mean can they be spread through drinking/eating after someone?

You may find it helpful to go through this list of how STIs are generally transferred from one person to another: STI Risk Assessment: The Cliff's Notes Note that even the ones that have a risk of transmission in manual sex generally require some direct contact vs. something being left on a fork or a drinking glass.

You're going to be much more likely to pass a cold or strep throat to anyone else than an STI, for sure. But washing your hands is definitely a good idea: The Simple And Underrated Art Of Washing Your Hands
