AIBU?

Using your husbands toothbrush?

Just spent a productive afternoon discovering the delights of Real Housewives of Dallas and Stephanie's husband bought her a new toothbrush as part of an anniversary present to stop her from using his Confused
AIBU to think that sharing food debris, plaque and morning mouth grot with your beloved is beyond gross?

Is it anymore gross than oral sex?

Ghostlyglow · 23/06/2020 20:14

I use my DP's sometimes - usually by mistake when I'm pissed Smile

Deltoids1 · 23/06/2020 20:14

You put his penis inside you, but a toothbrush is too gross???

ImInYourMindFuzz · 23/06/2020 20:15

Assuming you wash your toothbrush after use? Is it any worse than kissing / other intimate actions.

I've no issue with using eachother toothbrush but DH wrecks his so fast so its neither use nor ornament and I dont let him use mine because he'll wreck that too.

It's a bit icky.

Would only do it in an emergency.
I don't even share towels. Or bathrooms

Iwalkinmyclothing · 23/06/2020 20:21

If I can have his genitals in my mouth I don't see why his toothbrush would be a problem tbh.

JustC · 23/06/2020 20:24

I mean not intentionally, but it has happened. Wouldn't share on a constant basis. But it didn't make feel ick when it happened, like others have said, we've had various parts of ourselves in each other's mouths.

We went away once and DP was in charge of wash bag, packed his and the kids toothbrushes but not mine apparently I used his he was horrified, said it’s your fault for not packing mine, if you’re in charge of wash bag then pack my stuff

Bagelsandbrie · 23/06/2020 20:29

No way would I use dhs toothbrush and I would be horrified if I ever discovered he’d used mine. Yuck! For some reason I find it utterly revolting.

NeutrinoWrangler · 23/06/2020 20:31

I'd rather not share (and have never had reason to, yet), but it's one of those things that seem gross, but are actually rather illogical to find disgusting.

Surely you swap more germs while kissing (and so on) than from sharing a toothbrush.

lboogy · 23/06/2020 20:31

No way. That's gross

lboogy · 23/06/2020 20:32

And I don't use the same towel either . I've seen him floss his butt with the towel

Spied · 23/06/2020 20:34

No way I'd use DP's toothbrush.

PotteringAlong · 23/06/2020 20:36

It doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

Mistymonday · 23/06/2020 20:37

Ick, no way.

Doingtheboxerbeat · 23/06/2020 20:38

It's one of those times you have to be philosophical about it , it's like when people don't like using public toilets but wouldn't think twice about staying in a hotel - it's not logical to be that finicky about one thing but not the other.

Dominicgoings · 23/06/2020 20:44

No problem with genitals via the oral route. But sharing cruddy morning mouth stuff Confused That’s a whole other level of ick Grin

We are minging, we only take one toothbrush to share when we travel.
We also once found out we’d both been using the same netted-body-puff-wash-thing for months. We both thought ours was the pink one. Blush

emmetgirl · 23/06/2020 20:48

So putting his dick in your mouth is ok but not his toothbrush? Ok Hmm

Sewinginscotland · 23/06/2020 20:49

I've done it when we go away and one of us has forgotten it. It wasn't the end of the world. But I wouldn't do it on purpose.

DramaAlpaca · 23/06/2020 20:50

Yuck no. I've been with DH for over 30 years and we've never once shared a toothbrush. The thought makes me shudder.

GlendaSugarbeanIsJudgingYou · 23/06/2020 20:50

See, the toothbrush thing doesn't bother me but I would be horrified if I found out he was using my shower sponge.

I'm a massive fuss when it comes to my sponges and body puffs.

StarScream22 · 23/06/2020 20:53

Ew. No. My ex used my toothbrush once and I threw it in the bin.
