Masturbation when you have herpes?

8 posts in this topic

I wanted to hear from the guys out there with herpes how they handle masturbation? Are they afraid of spreading it to other locations on their penis while jacking off or getting it on their hands, etc.? What does one do? Never get off ever again? Wear a rubber glove? Tried doing it with a condom on but too hard to achieve the goal. Feel like I will never have sex or anything ever again. Help. :(

ok well im not a guy but i just wanted to reply-

- u have genital herpes i assume.... >>genital meaning its either going from ur penis to ur ass. so since u already have it, u cant spread it to the same genitalia.... and if u do have any fears of jacking off, rem u can always wash after u do it... hands/penis- surrounding area... washing is GOOD.

also wondering about this.

i am a guy.

pretty sure i'm in the middle of an outbreak (initial).

i withheld for a while but gave in to temptation.

usually when i masturbate i get red areas on my body, which go away quite soon. and this is not from physically exerting myself, i think it's some hormonal thing. when i'm especially horny this happens also. not as much as when i was younger.

anyway, i don't want to make the outbreak any worse by over-exciting my bodily activities.

also, my outbreak is not on the penis itself. i don't want to spread it there.

i was careful those two times, washing carefully before and after.

but my hands are getting really dry from washing them too much.

any advice?

Cruel

I think the cruelest thing about herpes is that during an outbreak or nearing one I get extremely sensitive and horny. Its not enough that I can't have sex but your going to throw the desire and passion in my face? Bastard of a virus!! It's a double whammy.

Does this happen to anyone else? I probably masturbate more during an outbreak than any other time just to will the extreme sensations away.

This may sound outrageous, but I've found that if I feel the beginnings of an ob coming on, sex will often stop it in it's tracks. Maybe it's the endorphins that are released. You have to catch it early, though. Once the virus is 'dug in', so to speak, it's too late.

And, no, you don't have to worry about spreading the ob to other locations on your genitals.

I'm like you phoenix I tend to feel most horny when an OB appears to be on the way and it often feels strangely satisfying?

Ditch the rubbers, go right ahead and have a good time!!!!!!!!!

Presumably you wash your hands anyway after wanking. So no harm, no foul.

      It's great to see other people with positive attitudes and im very similar in that i learned years ago to be grateful for what i have because there are worth of people in the world and me and when i was diagnosed the year ago i pretty much accepted it because of those thoughts.  Of course my biggest fear was that no one would want me but that's proven to be completely untrue but I've also found that being fortunate enough to have no outbreaks has made a real difference as well. Unfortunately there are some people who have constant symptoms and really struggle with this mentally and it's a shame because as you said herpes really doesn't change your life but your mindset does if you let it
    • Lisajd
      It could be either.  Generally symptoms are tingling and itching.  Friction can cause an outbreak though.   If you are in your first year you will shed more but it also depends on how often you have outbreaks as to how much you shed as well and if you are on anti virals you shed less   It's funny it reminds me of a time when I had sex with my boyfriend and I felt this really hot burning sensation but it was because he was eating chili during the day and must have got under his finger nails.

      It's actually interesting the whole lysine vs arginine thing because even Terri Warren said there is no valid evidence that a diet high in lysine and low in arginine makes a difference.  She said  it's more about some things trigger outbreaks more than they do others in different people.  I also read that lysine is not very effective with HSV 2.  @Shocked&Confused it really is a trial and error situation I know for me that eating nuts on a daily basis have not been a problem I think a lot of things are in moderation as well but I would suggest just keeping normal diet and if you have an outbreak assess what you had it in prayer and you will know what your triggers are at least while you're developing antibodies in the first year it might be a different story with your diet.    
    • Lisajd
      Also if you are on antivirals lysine isn't going to make any difference and even with HSV 2 the jury is out on whether it's effective anyway so you might be wasting your money on that one.  Definitely the stress is going to be a contributor so perhaps you can find some natural supplements to help you manage that better.  Is there anything else going on in your life as in hormonal changes are you getting your periods all the time as well

      Are the outbreaks finally getting under control?  Hope you're doing better.

      I made the mistake of buying a pack of peanut butter cookies from the grocery store bakery and eating almost the whole thing in one herpes-induced depression cry-fest Wednesday night and by Friday...BOOM!  No more peanut butter for me

      I found your blog.   I saw that you changed to About Time protein powder. You like banana the best?  I'm thinking I'll try the vanilla but I'm worried the flavor might not be good.....

      Yeah, gotta help your body clear the pipes.   I had this gnarly testicle twisting sensation about 5 weeks into my infection.   I didn't know about St. John's Wort at the time, but took an herb called Japanese knotweed/Polyogonum cuspidatum/Hu Zhang.   It's a chinese herb that is mostly used for venereal disease.   It also has the greatest amount of resveratrol for its price. So the fad-health entrepreneurs use it as the source for resveratrol supplements.    So... You could go get a resveratrol supplement (that's what I did) and try that.   But make sure Japanese knotweed or polygonum cuspidatum or Hu Zhang is in the ingredients.   You don't want the resveratrol from grapes for your balls. I took 1 dose and was surprised how it cleared.

      -Does your family have a history of aura-migraines?
      -How long have you been vegan?
      -Are you bowel movements normal?
      -Is your sleep ok?  How about before this?
      -The hip and low back pain could be because of an acute viral infection like herpes. Especially since it sounds like you've been sexually flirting with it.  You could be sensitive as a result of being vegan, and organs like your heart, liver and kidneys really feel the weight when your energy is being put into building resistant to the virus or whatever else you may or may not have gotten. But to talk about your symptoms.  Eye twitching is a liver-blood deficiency issue.  Auras-migraines relate to the liver.   Heart palpitations are a blood issue.  And, for lack of technical eloquence, if your liver isn't happy then it can literally piss off the heart.   The low back usually pertains to the kidneys (~where you 12th rib is).  Ears ringing can be a result of liver and/or kidneys.  If it was sudden blasting ear ringing then it's more on the liver.  If you have a steady low ring then it's the kidney.     Blood and the general fluids are essential for making everything happy.  Heart doesn't have enough blood, it starts freaking out and you get palpitations.  And the B12 supplementation...  B12 targets the liver.  So if any of these symptoms are exacerbated when taking B12 then that could be something. Not trying to be overly critical but, unless you're consciously juicing every day, veganism is not very supportive of a human's dietary needs. If anything, be vegetarian and find a legit source for the dairy.  Every long-term vegan I know, especially the long-term vegans, have issues with ringing ears, low back pain, restlessness..  ..and sunken in eyes...   I think it's a good thing as a cleanse as someone would fast.  But if you're already in the world of deficiency then you need to supplement more to your essence.   As far as dairy, using a ghee is very good.  They separate the afflictive proteins in it so it's the "pure butter".  Fat is the most important substance for your nervous system.  Fuck protein and carbohydrates.  They ain't shit compared to fat.  In the same way that oil provides energy for fire, it provides the same to your metabolic fire.   Also, fat is what your nervous system is made out of.  So feed it.   And plant fats... I don't want to get too off topic, but I don't know a vegan culture.   India, on the other hand, has a vegetarianism in it's culture for 1000s of years.  That's what I'd be following if I were a strict vegetarian.  And on that note, in Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine), if someone were blood deficient and run down then they'd prescribe them to eat beef (at noon) every day for 2 weeks.   Personally, I think making bone broth is a better route to go.  I don't eat beef, I really don't like it but if I was in a vulnerable position I'd make some bone broth.  That time came, I made that broth and woooooo I felt soo good.  Like my tanks had been filled.  If you don't want to do cow or chicken then you can do a fish head broth.   It's not as powerful but at least it's a better supplement than soley taking B12.
