Can You Get Herpes From Library Books? (No, but we’re glad you asked.)

Copies of the book "Fifty Shades of Grey

Here’s the story: two university professors in Belgium ran toxicology and bacteriology screenings on the ten most borrowed books at the Antwerp library. Fifty Shades of Grey contained traces of herpes. (They didn’t say whether it was HSV 1 or 2.)

Don’t panic. The traces of the virus weren’t enough to infect anyone. You’re not going to catch an STI from your library book.

Still, this seems like a good time for an etiquette lesson: if you are going to masturbate while reading a book, please buy your own copy. Do not make out with your library book. Do your best not to get your bodily fluids on your library book. It’s common courtesy. 

You might also take this as a lesson in common sense: consider buying your own erotica and using the library for less bodice-ripping books.

On the other hand, you might want to be more careful about library books in general. The Belgian professors found traces of cocaine in every single one of the books they tested – not enough to get you high, but enough that you could fail a drug test after handling one of the books. If you have a drug test coming up, consider using latex gloves with your library books.
