Much Ado About Sharing a Toothbrush! (Le Boo & I).





Everyone, or at least most people know that sharing toothbrushes can be very unsanitary, but being in a relationship and doing relationship things sometimes makes certain things that ordinarily aren't, okay for some people. 

The first time a lover used my toothbrush I was 23. We'd just woken up and I lay lazily in bed and smiled smugly at myself for snagging such a catch. Afam was a great catch, or so the 23 year old me thought. In restrospect I realize he was simply a very nicely put together narcissistic eejit, but that's besides the point now. 

So when he walked to the bathroom and my heart raced at his toned legs and thighs and... ahem... Anyways, so when he walked to the bathroom and opened the cabinet and took out a toothbrush and put it in his mouth and I saw the colour and I saw that it was mine, I freaked out! I was actually caught between being horrified and flattered. Horrified because isn't that simply gross??? Flattered because this perfect Adonis was sharing my toothbrush... 

But I was more horrified than flattered so I asked why he was using my toothbrush and his reply was why not? As in, take into consideration the activities of last night (whatever visuals you have are totally up to you), is sharing a toothbrush really that bad? 

Err, maybe not. But still...

And that's the same thinking the present boo has. But not necessarily because of any nightly (or daily, for that matter) activities, but because of how close we are, (I can't describe the closeness without sounding poetic and I'm not in mushy mood so "close" would have to suffice for now!) he thinks us sharing a toothbrush is quite natural. 

Err, nope!

Nah. 

Nyet!

LOL. 

I went online and checked what people think about sharing toothbrushes with their partners. These three comments from different sites explain the three different popular views. 

1. (Only because I have to, I'd rather not) My husband uses my toothbrush and I am not comfortable with it, when I complain it causes serious problems for us. Most days I just wait until he goes out before I brush with my personal  hidden toothbrush. 

2. (Of course YES!) I share everything with him and if a time comes when I have to use his toothbrush, I will not hesitate. You guys are making it look like you are sharing a toothbrush with one random person on the street. 
2(b). I share my girl's brush and she doesn't mind. She uses mine too. Same with sponge, towel and everything. 

3. (Absolutely Not!No Phocking Way! I have very strong gag reflex! In fact, just thinking about it is enough to make me throw up. 


Hehe.

So my people, what side are you on. Can you, do you share your toothbrush with the boo? What other things are absolutely no-nos when it comes to sharing with the boo? I'm ok sharing cutlery, a plate, boxers & other clothing apparel etc etc etc, but some people are not. What about you?

  3. Sharing tooth brush is disgusting. In my head its the same as your partner filling a cup with saliva and giving it to you to drink. Thats exactly how it is. Ewww!

    I can still manage to kiss during (not after) oral sex. But dont go near my damn toothbrush.

    Peace

    2. If you can have oral sex, ie lick a woman's vagina and in the process swallow her discharge, there's no reason why you cannot use her toothbrush.

      Delete
    3. I'm even wondering the difference between kissing during oral sex and kissing after, to me they are the same thing. I can share my toothbrush with my hubby, can even share my sponge, sharing of towel depends on if i used it first, using a wet towel makes me super uncomfortable, sharing cutlery hmmmmm thats the one that's not too easy for me, but i still can

    4. You can share a toothbrush but not cutlery? You and Kon are the same lol.

  4. If you are celibate and in a relationship you have no business sharing your tooth brush with your BF unless you know his HIV status.

    That you are in a sexual relationship with your BF, it does not justify the necessity to use same tooth brush. That is not a healthy oral hygiene practice.

    If you are married, you must not share toothbrush with hubby but if BOTH of you are comfortable with it, that's ok. I do not see why a spouse should force the other to share toothbrush.

    I don't share toothbrush with my husband except in situations where I do not have mine and can't get one. I share a sponge with him but not my towel. Sometimes he uses my towel but I have many so I bring out another one.

  5. Toothbrush is a no-no for me. I have periodontitis. Even without that I wouldn't share my brush. I can share his cloths,cultery e.t.c

  6. I never even thought anyone would share any other person's toothbrush irrespective of the relationship between them. It's a big NO for me - also for towel and sponge.

  7. Our preferences when it comes to brands/types differs, so I guess we would never have that kind of issue. But I wouldn't mind letting him use mine or me using his if need be. Once, he had to use my towel, he asked politely ''Babe, you mind if I use your towel?'' and I gave him the go ahead.

    Visuals i have of this post: 2 pple in a relationship, having sex without condom. well, if we don't use condom, why cant we share toothbrush... its alright, as long as u both/couples know their status, i feel its OK to share anything!

  14. I do not fancy sharing a tiith brush or towel.

    My hubby occsssionally uses my sponge.

  15. For hygiene purposes o I can't share toothbrush and towel.It makes me cringe thinking of it. Eeeww. Even the day my friend and I went swimming and she forgot her towel I shared mine wt her .. But ermm I didn't go bk to that towel(not trying to be degrading or rude,she's a sweet friend). On another occasion le Boo left his towel and thankfully he didn't ask to share my towel wt him, he jejely went to buy at a closeby store. Inside me I was thankful we were on d same page in that hygiene area. That's just me.
    Anyway, to each man, his own.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancΓ©? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
