Today, I asked my mom why she had two tooth brushes: one manual and one electric. She said: "I only use the manual one for brushing my teeth." FML

I would not touch the other one if i were you....

Good luck getting that picture out of your head! I'd be scarred for life if I had that happen to me...

What reason would one have to touch another's toothbrush in the first place?

For when OP's mom makes him/her scrub the toilet with a toothbrush. You never use your own toothbrush.

The other question is...why she would keep that same toothbrush next to the one she uses manually?! Or why is it in the bathroom in the first place and not her nightstand? *Shudders*

Curiosity, it will leave you scarred for life.

Curiosity got the best of you didn't It, OP?

Well honestly, deducing that would not have been hard so why did OP ask?

Uh, I dunno about you, but when I see a toothbrush I automatically assume it's for, you know... brushing teeth.

That and no one wants to think that their mom masturbates or ever have but they do. So yes FML fans, all your moms **********... your dads too. Have fun with that

How about you get both of them, duct tape then together, and offer it to her as a gift. Just tell her its for practice for later on.

That's... not even remotely funny in any way.

Hmmm. I smell a sixth grade age person attempting to fit in although they have no idea what they are talking about. Those are just my thoughts on this. I should probably get going about now before "someone" rages... "I'm nawt 11!! :("

That's odd, you would think an actual toy would be better then a tooth brush.....

Most sex toys have less power than an electric toothbrush. Except the magic wand type, but those weren't designed as sex toys either. There are special attachments available that are easier on a clit than brushes. Remember that for Mother's Day!

#13, do you test different types of sex toys in your free time? (Yes, I'm aware that your profile says you're a man.)

Why would anyone want to remember that for Mother's Day?

32, in the hopes of her removing the toothbrush, after receiving an actual toy I assume. 13, I worked for an adult shop for a pretty long time. You'd be surprised what you learn.

Sorry didn't mean 13, was directing that part at 25.

Yes 38 I understood that part, but what guy out there would buy a toy for their own Mom? That doesn't seem like a normal kind of bonding.

Mom letting you in on her toothbrush secret isn't "normal" mom etiquette.

Geez, the one we got is almost too much vibration in fact to me it is, damn thing vibrates so hard I can only use it on her a little bit before I have to take a break because my hand hurts from the vibration..

Well, wthere is a question you regret asking...

I'm pretty sure that's not what most dentists recommend it for.

I actually own 2 aswell... originally got an electric one, then bought a manual one for when I'm on a trip/on vacation. Now I just use the manual one because the electric one is annoyingly noisy and I'm too lazy to buy a quieter one.

I've got both, too. I only use the manual toothbrush for quickies.

I don't see why one would assume the mom uses it for that, i mean toothbrushes are good for cleaning jewelery, or for small spaces where dirt can get stuck. I thought the answer was pretty normal and more innocent.

Oh darn, does that mean I should get rid of my second electric tooth brush? I use the old one when I'm sick, and the other when I'm not so I don't pass on the bug to myself later. (I do clean it before and after each use, but just out of laziness, I use two instead of replacing the toothbrush heads) Ugh, that explains my cousin's comment...He can be blunt sometimes.

#60 I'm fairly sure you can't get sick from your own germs.

DavidKnows 11

#74 yes, you CAN get infected by your own germs

But you can't get the same virus twice.. your body becomes immune to that virus once it gets rid of it. So you wouldn't get sick from your own toothbrush..

But viruses can evolve, hence why some family's go in a circle reinfecting each other

She should just hide it in her room and not in the open like that, what if someone uses it.... (.• A •;)

Maybe she uses it to clean? Or "clean?"

I'm just hoping she meant something else than using it as a toy(those would probably work better anyway), but I highly doubt it.
