Are you at risk of getting an STD from a public toilet seat? To answer this, you have to first understand how sexual infections spread. For someone to be infected with a sexual disease, there have to be sexual relations. The STD is transferred from the infected party through sexual fluids. This alone proves that you cannot get an std from a toilet seat or any other physical interaction including kissing.
Viruses causing stds do not survive for a long time once in the open air. Even when active, they still cannot penetrate the skin without an opening. You can, therefore, use public toilets without worrying about getting an std. Skin diseases can be transmitted through toilet seats so you still need to be careful.
