For the most part, nope not a chance. ExH was not hygienic and there was no way I was opening myself up to that.

Db, whom I live with, is a germ-o-phobe, so it's usually out of the question. He did have to use mine once when he forgot his on a trip and the store was closed by the time he noticed. It pained him, but he made it through! In that situation, and with him, yes I would.

I think it depends on the other person, and the situation. Definitely not an everyday thing for me, for sure.

Absolutely we share, DW doesn't like my electric toothbrush though. The I see it we have things in each others mouths that are more unsanitary than toothbrushes.

No. Never. Nu uh.

I'll gladly wear fuzzy tooth slippers and chew a piece of gum before I use someone else's brush.

Ick, no! Although I will admit that once or twice in our marriage, I have forgotten which brush is mine and just hope for the best! Honestly, the thought has never crossed my mind to share his if one of us forgot on vacation. We get a hotel brush or make do with just paste and get to a store.

If we had to in an emergency. I mean, we kiss and do "other stuff". Not like I'd be exposed to any new germs
