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.

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

  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.
