I have HSV2 and he has HSV1

Are his chances of contracting genital herps less due to the fact he has oral herps?

No. Sorry, but no. And your chances of contracting oral herpes aren't any less, either.

But are you sure you have type 2? Have you been tested? Because if you both have the same type, it's mostly not an issue.

I was in a relationship over 8 years that I had HS2 and she had HS1 and neither one of us caught the other type.
