I hope most people with OCD and fears of contamination will be able to laugh at this product . An American company, Blueq is selling “Maybe You Touched Your Genitals Hand Sanitizer“. They seem to be quite knowledgeable about OCD as they used to sell “Wash Away Your Sins” Towelettes for moral contamination.

OCD fears is not of course really about “contaminants” – it’s driven by the beliefs and emotional associations with the objects of contamination. The first step in overcoming OCD is of course to stop treating is an contamination problem and to treat it as an anxiety problem. This of course has a completely different set of solutions compared to sanitizers and excessive washing.
