Masturbating with sores present?

Recommended Posts

Is it safe for a male to masturbate with sores present as long as they don't touch the sores, or will the skin stretching from the erection/masturbating cause the sores to break open further?

Um....I don't know how it is for guys, but since I'm a girl I was told that it will hurt, but as long as I wash up after I was finished it would keep them from getting worse. I would say for you to try it first and take it from there. Wish you luck ^_~

Hey, if you do masterbate with sores around, is it possible to spread the infection to other parts of the rod or do anti-bodies prevent that sort of spreading?

I've flogged the dolphin while there were sores, but mine were really kinda like small pimples and weren't giving me any physical pain when they struck.

I think, in theory, if you had sores or were shedding and ALSO had an open sore on your hand or a hang nail , you might be able to spread it.

Any one agree or disagree?

if someone was brave enough to masterbate especially with the sores being open make sure they have latex gloves. lol if not it can spread ive seen pics of hsv2 on hands b4.

I'd think it's okay. I'd wash my hands with hot soapy water for at least 20 seconds right afterwards to be on the safe side :)

masturbating during an active outbreak prolongs it. Let the virus retreat and settle down. Let the sores heal. You can get busy afterward.

A really good book on herpes is "The Truth About Herpes" By Dr. Stephen Sacks. That has all the technical info you need to understand how the virus works, transmission, treating it and living with it.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
