Do women insist on putting covers on pillows in order to turn them into random guillotines for your penis too?

Because I've never had a Tristram Shandy with the window-sash moment with my pillows, of which there are too many because I like to have special pillows for under my head, over my head, building impromptu bed forts, hugging, building fake bedmates to half my chance of being stabbed to death by burglars, etc.

Because to tell the truth, I'm skeptical about the mere number of germs being the key factor in how sick you are likely to get. Sure there are more germs on your keyboard than on your toilet, but the germs on your keyboard are hand germs and the germs on your toilet seat are toilet germs. Big difference. The germ on your pillows are drool germs. What can they do to you that they haven't already done to you on your teeth?

Lift the toilet seat. It gives you a much larger target and the actual porcelain feel good and so very cool against your fevered puking face.

/at this point. bacteria is probably the least of your worries.

We live in a microbiological soup. Deal with it.

Article kind of mentions at the end, but the important thing isn't the number of bacteria, it is what bacterial species are present. The vast majority of bacteria are harmless or potentially beneficial. It is only some strains, in some species, that even have the capability of causing disease.
