I want to take my husband to a hottub this weekend. I am really excited. However I just heard rumors about hot tubs. Can you tell me if you can contract any std from hottubs. What are my risks?

I think this is one of the most asked questions regarding stds...The myth that you can contract an std or infection from a hottub is just that...A myth. Hottubs have chemicals in them that kill off any harmful bacteria so there is no potential risk of catching anything...The only thing I would worry about is if you were using a hot tub with just water...But who does that? Lol so anyways, have fun, stop worrying, and happy hottubbing because you're in the clear! Laughing
