Toothing Safety and Security

Bluetooth Security Issues

  • Don't have your personal contact list or personal numbers and addresses available on the device you use for toothing. This information can be downloaded by another Bluetooth user when your device is turned on.
  • Protect your identity and privacy by adopting a nickname for toothing. Make sure your real name is not entered as a contact on the phone or device you are using for toothing.
  • Be cautious if using a Bluetooth device you’ve gotten from your office. It may display a company name in the contact field, and may have business contacts or other company info on it that could be downloaded by someone unscrupulous and used against you.
  • Remember that the more information you have stored on your device, the more vulnerable you are. If using a Bluetooth-enabled PC or PDA for toothing, be aware that stored addresses, calendars, contact lists, etc. may be visible and subject to downloading by other Bluetooth users.

Safe Sex and Toothing

  • Always use condoms. Have several on hand where you can get to them easily, either in your wallet, pants pocket or purse. If you're having sex in a public lavatory, it may have a condom machine, but don't count on it.
  • Remember that even if someone looks clean, he or she may still have an STD.
  • Use lube for intercourse. You can buy single-use packets of lube and have a couple stashed in a pocket or purse.
  • Women, know your limits and make them clear once you and your partner get alone. Things can happen quickly in the heat of the moment, but don't hesitate to tell a guy to back off if he goes too far.
  • If you're toothing in bars or clubs, don't let alcohol or other substances cloud your judgment. Being sotted can lead you into both risky behaviour and dangerous situations.

Personal Safety

  • Use caution and common sense when meeting strangers. Don't give out any personal information such as your full name or where you live or work.
  • If you go someplace more secluded for a rendezvous, be familiar with the location. Make sure there are at least two exits from the area and know where they are.
  • Alert a friend that you're going toothing and may be hooking up with strangers, and have that friend be "on call" with their phone if you get into a jam.
  • Keep your cell phone handy and be ready to dial for help in an emergency.
  • Steer clear of seedy areas where activities like prostitution or drug dealing may be taking place.
  • Leave valuables (jewelry, expensive watches, etc.) at home. Carry a limited amount of cash and one credit card or debit card at most.
  • When you and your partner go your separate ways, don't go directly home. Stop off for a drink, or take a detour to make sure you aren't being followed.
