You don’t even have to take your clothes off to get a s*xually transmitted infection.
Technically it’s possible to catch an STI without having s*x, even if you’re a virgin.
If you want to avoid getting infected, it’s important to know what kind of everyday behaviour might put you at risk.
According to Health Express there’s seven weird ways you can contract a disease downstairs.
Here is the full list of bizarre things to watch out for – from razors to towels and tanning beds.
1. Using tanning beds
It sounds disgusting but the beauty salon can be a hotbed for herpes and human papilloma virus (HPV).
Because breakouts of these two STIs can appear anywhere on the body, they can easily be transferred onto the bed.
The warm, moist environment is a breeding ground for bacteria, but as long as you go to a decent salon they should wipe down the beds inbetween clients which will keep you safe.
