So I thought of this after a joke in How I Met Your Mother about Marshall and Lily sharing a toothbrush…does anyone else do that?
All the characters on the show were super weirded out by the idea, but I’ll admit that the mister and I kinda do it too. We have maybe 4 tootbrushes between the two of us, two in the medicine cabinet and two in the shower and we always just use what’s closest. So I guess we share all four? Maybe it’s a little gross. Hmmm.

I have, on occasion, used my FI’s toothbrush. This is usually when we have been out of town and I forgot my own. He thinks it’s disgusting, so I don’t usually tell him!

No way! Bleck! We’re both neurotically clean, so toothbrush sharing won’t happen with us.

I have a small mouth- so I still use a pediatric toothbrush, so I don’t think we could share. But I must admit I shared most of the characters reactions [read: ew]

I was wondering if this was referencing the HIMYM episode when I saw the title! 😛
We’ve only shared on occasion, like when one of us forgot our toothbrush somewhere else, or if it broke, etc. I think it’s happened maybe 5 times in our 5 1/2 year relationship.

I loved that episode!
I would only share a toothbrush in an emergency situation!

We’ve shared when one of us forgets a toothbrush, or if one of us uses the other’s accidentally, it’s not a big deal. He’s the ONLY Person I could ever do that with!

Yuck yuck yuck!!! Ugh, that makes me shudder! I don’t know if I would do it even in an emergency situation. That totally squicks me out!

Ew no way. My boy and I have lived together for over 5 years so we have pretty loose boundaries, but using eachothers toothbrush would make those boundaries WAY too loose for my liking.

I have accidentally used his a couple of times… I don’t like to think about it lol I really just rather not share.

maybe only once..and it was me using his. He would NEVER use mine though. Fiance is a dentist and he knows all too well how many bugs live comfortably in toothbrushes. 😀

Nope. I have an electric toothbrush and he has a regular one. I’ve only used his on the rarest of occassions–like my battery died in mine and I’d already trashed the headpiece and I basically had no toothbrush. Or when I’d fly to see him (when we were LDR for 5 years) it was inevtiable that one of us would occassionally forget a toothbrush and we’d have to go buy one the next day.
We share a toilet. Toilets collect poop. Poop is grosser than mouth scurf. =]
