Can't get Herpes with Coconut Oil?


Recommended Posts





Coconut Oil has been shown to contain alot of antiviral properties. Herpes simply cannot survive in it, however I'm curious at how effective it is at preventing herpes transmission during sex, and if it'd make you near invincible. Herpes during sex is transmitted through skin to skin friction which coconut oil significant reduces.  Also if the virus were to leave the carrier's body it would get caught up in the layer of oil and killed. But how fast? Also, The lube drys out as you rub against each other, so you'd have to keep re-applying every so often.


Depending on the intensity of the sex, the coconut oil will get thoroughly rubbed into the persons skin layers, which'd mean the virus undoubtedly be on the persons skin and flesh. But, Theoretically, The virus should be dead/inactive due to being surrounded by the anti viral coconut oil, so it wouldn't even be able to crawl into their body to infect.


We need to get a bunch of lab mice or monkey, Infect 2 with herpes (Control and Test groups) , cover the test group in coconut oil, and let them have sex. If the test group shows less herpes transmission rates than that means that Coconut oil decreases STD TRANSMISSION!


Why hasn't this been done yet? Even if it didn't reduce transmission by 100%, 50% would lower std rates significantly.

I do use it with polyisoprene condoms.  I cover the trunk area we are clean so far.  6yrs he doesn't have it. I have also sprayed with zinc. The coconut oil feels awesome. I also use lube

Does he put on the Coconut Oil too or just you? I think both might be needed to prevent infection.

We both do. For HSV 2 I would be better served to use zinc lactate. For hsv 1 ppl would be better served to use zinc gluconate.  according to the thread in here on zinc and studies

Alright thanks. But doesn't the zinc have to be absorbed into the skin become effective for the body?

I spray it on because it is an antiviral invitro. Make out and kiss while it dries, then rub coconut oil on each other, wipe off hands

ETA: and put more coconut oil on hands and run your hands up and down her bod. If you use this and so does she, also use lube, a good lube. It is so fun!!! YUMMSTERS

I have to tell you something funny. We oiled our bodies with J-lube, (it is a slime) we put a shower curtain on the bed and we were mattress dancing, we were so slick I fell off the bed. :faint:haha, we were laughing so hard, word to the wise sex on an entirely slick body is dangerous!!!:totalshock: oil one side only, haha

Lessen your chances maybe. Cut the risk altogether, probably not.

For anyone and @BrokengracePlease allow me to do that here. In the family of zincs zinc lactate is better for hsv2 Let me get you some links and more info later. I am swamped I will be building on this thread all day.

Zinc lactate needs to be ordered from a chemical company and it is handled very differently. But the stats on it are really neat ...up into the 90s? I will get you in the exact info

Sagami condoms -0.02 or 0.01 American condoms are not thin no matter what they say. (when measured and it is hard to get that info on thinness and thin doesn't mean weak at all) I get them in Canada and they are shipped out of Japan, because of the price. He has to be about 6" or lower because they are more normal sizes. That is for the large sized condom. . I think they have a few expensive small pack on Amazon America, I have not looked lately. They used to have them cheap at a dollar a piece. not anymore. :(

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
