It is the same with floggers, The educate is that one flogger should be for one person. But rarely in a bar scene is it the case. I myself have used the same gloves publicly for now 9 years But, I have a alcohol spray, wash my leather lightly with dextrous soap, a hospital only acquirable substance. BUT, still I have contracted MRSA from a open zit on a girl’s ass.
Let me tell you a story about the hospitals here in Toronto. One of them, had a problem with an OR one of the most sterile environments on the planet. Every operation ended with the patient contracting MRSA. They narrowed it down to the doctor’s farts. They have subsequently stated testing EVERYONE coming in the door. In 2005 I hosted a night that did blood play on a stage in the venue… I would NEVER do now. Times change.
