    You usually get it from having sex with someone who has it already.  No way around it. The toilet would have to be very very dirty with fresh infected stuff all smeared on it, for you to be able to catch it, and that could only be possible if you would have as close contact with those fluids as you have when having sex. Not likely, right? Who would even sit on a toilet like that?

    Sorry, I didn't realize I was asked this question until now.

    Yes, it is absolutely possible to get trichomoniasis without having sex, though it's pretty uncommon for men to get it this way because the urethra isn't quite so, erm, accessible as it is in women. It can be passed person to person by sharing towels even, because the parasite can live for several hours in damp materials.

    It has nothing to do with yeast infections, though.
