    you can get certain STIs from oral sex, particularly herpes. you can also be infected with HIV if you have oral sex with an infected person and you have open sores or wounds in your mouth.

    but not from things like toilet seats. i remember reading somewhere that there are 3 times as many germs in a kebab as on a toilet seat.

    You can get scabies from infected bedlinen and towels. But that 'caught it off a toilet seat' thing is not likely.
