Your phone is one of the dirtiest things you own. You probably take it everywhere with you, which means it gets exposed to all sorts of bacteria and germs. And since you probably can't remember the last time you actually cleaned it, it's probably covered in germs right now. So how often should you disinfect your phone? The answer may surprise you. Experts say you should disinfect your phone at least once a week. But if you're someone who is constantly using your phone and exposing it to different environments, you may want to disinfect it more often. There are a few different ways you can disinfect your phone. You can use a disinfecting wipe or a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Just make sure you're not using too much alcohol, as it can damage your phone's screen. You should also clean the case of your phone, as well as any other accessories you use with it. These can also harbor germs and bacteria. So there you have it. Disinfect your phone at least once a week to help keep it clean and bacteria-free.

While they may not be 100% effective, they're still a good way to help reduce the spread of germs and bacteria. And, let's be honest- who doesn't love the feeling of a clean, disinfected house?



5 Benefits of Public Displays of Affection

Most people enjoy feeling loved and appreciated. When we feel loved, we feel happy and our self-esteem is boosted. For some people, public displays of affection (PDA) are a way to feel loved and to show their love for someone else. There are many benefits to enjoying PDA. First, it can make the person doing the PDA feel good. When we see someone we love showing their affection for us in public, it can make our day. It can also make us feel more confident in ourselves and our relationship. Second, PDA can be a way to show our love for someone else. When we are proud of our relationship and we want to show the world how much we love our partner, PDA can be a way to do that. It can also be a way to make our partner feel loved and appreciated. Third, PDA can be a way to make new friends and connections. When we see someone we are attracted to and they are showing affection for their partner, it can be a way to start a conversation and get to know them better. Fourth, PDA can be a way to spice up our sex life. When we are feeling frisky and we want to add a little excitement to our sex life, PDA can be a way to do that. It can also be a way to add a little variety to our sex life. Finally, PDA can be a way to express our personality. If we are outgoing and enjoy being the center of attention, PDA can be a way to show that. If we are more private and reserved, PDA can be a way to show our affection in a way that is comfortable for us. No matter what our reasons are for enjoying PDA, it is important to remember that we should always be respectful of other people’s personal space and boundaries. PDA should never be used to make someone else feel uncomfortable or to take advantage of someone. If you are someone who enjoys PDA, make sure to enjoy it in a way that is respectful and consensual. And if you are someone who doesn’t enjoy PDA, that is OK too. There is no right or wrong way to feel about PDA, it is just a personal preference.

LGBTQIA+ PDA compared to heterosexual PDA

A lot of people see LGBTQIA+ PDA and get grossed out or think it's weird, but why? Heterosexual PDA is seen as normal and cute, but when two people of the same gender show affection in public, people tend to get uncomfortable. There's nothing wrong with LGBTQIA+ PDA, and people should be more accepting of it. Think about it this way: if you're walking down the street and you see a heterosexual couple holding hands or kissing, you probably don't think twice about it. But if you see a gay couple doing the same thing, you might stare or even say something offensive. It's not right that people are treated differently based on their sexual orientation, and we need to be more accepting of LGBTQIA+ PDA. So the next time you see a gay couple showing affection in public, don't stare or say anything negative. Just appreciate that love is love, no matter what form it comes in.
