Recommended Posts

Hi,

I would like to know your experience with hsv2. I do jave hsv1 and I get frequent outbreaks. However I have never had something similar in my genital area.

I am gay and I have a partner for like 9 years. I have been dating random people just to have mutual masturbation (and sometimes oral). :( Never anal sex.

Now, I masturbate a LOT and I shave my genital area. I feel the area where the scrotum meets the penis itchy, some rash, but it does not feel like pain (like my oral outbreaks). I hope I did not get hsv2 :(. I do not see any blister, so what I am going to do is no more masturbation until the area gets cleared.

What do you think?

Hey oce welcome to our family :hithere: Okay first let me ask have you tested for herpes by a blood test, if so how long ago? When you say hsv1 I am assuming it is oral ? It could be since only oral was received, you could have gotten h1 genitally. Even though you have oral h1 it isn't impossible to get it genitally too. It is Rare since your oral h provided some protections, but it is not impossible to have same type (this case h1) in both locations. Does your partner get cold sores? How about someone you randomly dated, they could have cold sores but never had any symptoms or sores.

Yes, frictions and rough sexy times can cause outbreaks and they can cause irritations. Have you thought of using lubes for masturbation ? This could ease the frictions and certainly man scaping can cause irritations, so if you received oral pleasures after this it could cause some discomforts.

If you did not receive anal sex it is most likely NOT ghsv2. I agree hold off on self pleasures until this area heals. Have you thought of seeing a dermatologist? Guys can get skin issues just as we girls can, so give it a rest and see if this area heals, if it doesn't subside then definitely see a doctor. Let us know honey and once again welcome to our family :itllbeok: Aces xo

Hi Aces,

Thanks for taking your time to respond. I've never tested for HSV-1, but I get cold sores since I was like 12 y/o. Even though I have been with my parter for 9 years, he never gets outbreaks, when I get sores around my lips I never kiss him or perform oral at all. He is not concerned with HSV1, he supports me a lot. Please dont judge me because I do random hookups :(. My parent travels a lot and I only see him 1 every 2 months and our sexual activity is not the best, we enjoy each other when we do normal stuff than when we have sex. That's why I only date for mutual masturbation (because I think is the safest thing). I don't think I should be tested for hsv1 since I know it is hsv1 :(.

During my random encounters I have been taking acyclovir 400mg every day (2 pills) to treat oral hsv-1 (prescribed by my dermatologist, so I am hoping that helps someway?

hey oce, we dont judge here sweetheart. Plus you are not married so it really is not cheating right? Besides it is noone business but your honey so no worries okay.

okay since 12 then your body has some protective antibodies, but through oral sex you can still get oral H1 genitally. Know what I mean? You could still have gotten oral H1 in the genital region . Make sense?

      Any guys in Dallas with HSV? Would love to connect with someone since I’m new to the condition.

      I get a generic 3 month supply of valtrex in the US for about $50...that’s one pill a day at 1000mg a pill.

      Makes complete sense to me.  My mother never exhibited HSV1, but never exhibited.  I am all for whatever it takes!

      I’ve been seeing this guy for two months now. I’ve had hsv2 down there for 3 years...never have I spread it to anyway, and had a relationship of a year and had sex with the same guy the whole year. So, when I started seeing this guy, I told him up front about it. Told him it really isn’t a huge deal and I’ve bever passed it but there’s a small risk. So 5 weeks in, we’ve had sex a few times and 17days after we had protected sex (I’m also on daily antiviral pills) he texts me saying he can’t pee because it is so painful. I am so depressed I passed it to him. I know he agreed to the risk, but neither of us actually “thought” i would pass it, if that makes sense. Always a risk, I know, and as I said, he agreed. But he is upset now. In denial and went almost a full week unable to urinate because he was in such bad pain. He did have a blister show up around Day 6 of the peein problem so it’s def herpes. Unsure what to say to him. I feel terrible for bringing that upon him. Anyone have similar situations? Also haven’t talked in a few days. Giving him time before trying to start a convo. I’m sure he doesn’t want to talk right now.
