I was recently diagnosed with gonorrhoea and my wife also.We both know, we haven’t cheated and I was doing some research.It says it’s a bacteria that can grow and can be transmitted from dirty sex toys or dirty hands.My question is, if you do not clean off the sex toy such as vibrator, can the bacteria grow on it and then once you use it again, can you contract the bacteria giving you gonorrhoea?
Transmission of chlamydia is more likely to occur if you insert them into your body (as opposed to not inserting the sex toy during use) or if they’re made from a highly porous material (such as neoprene, vinyl, acrylic, or thermoplastic), as bodily fluids are more likely to remain on the toy. Furthermore, if you share your sex toys with a partner without cleaning them, it can increase the risk of spreading chlamydia and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) to each other.
If you use a sex toy in your butt and then use it in your own vagina (or around your penile opening), this can also result in one of these infections.
Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection that is spread through unprotected oral, vaginal or anal sex with an infected partner, including through mutual masturbation and sharing of sex toys. Penetration and ejaculation are not required for transmission.
There may be chances of getting reinfected with it but one thing is for sure that the sex toys can never reinfect you with Chlamydia. Hence you should be rest assured about that. However, if you are suffering from symptoms like pain while having intercourse or vaginal discharge then I would suggest you to visit your doctor as there might be a case where your infection of Chlamydia might not have healed properly.

unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sex sharing vibrators or other sex toys that have not been washed or covered with a new condom each time they're used The bacteria can infect the entrance to the womb (cervix), the tube that passes urine out of the body (urethra), the rectum and, less commonly, the throat or eyes.
Here’s an easy fix: Just put a new condom on your sex toy every time you use it, depending on the toy’s shape. This can eliminate the need for cleaning altogether.
If this is not done, there's a chance that the gonorrhea bacterium could stay in the bodily fluids on the sex toy and infect the next person to use it. Safe Activities Gonorrhea is transmitted through semen or vaginal fluids.
Passing it directly from one person to another without cleaning it can leave sexual fluids on the surface of the toy which can lead to one person passing an infection to the other. Of course, if you are using sex toys with a partner, the best way to ensure the safety of all parties involved is for people to use their own sex toys and not share them.
