Dating another HSV positive - Oral Sex Risks ?

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone,

Well part of my soul died 2 years ago when this came to me, 
I have withdrawn from my friends and family, and completely unable to try to date, flirt or anything,
I can not let myself to consider ever dating a non-infected girl, and feeling that I won't get luck to find the suitable & right hsv-2 match....

I am HSV-2 genital, frequent OB on 1st year, getting better now

I did date 1 girl which is also HSV-2 carrier,

My question/concern here :  about ORAL SEX   (me getting down on a girl),
As I am already HSV-2 infected, is it safe or OK for me to (  of course NOT during OB / tingling on the partner side):

- Oral sex on a HSV-2-G  girl ?

- Oral sex on a HSV-1-G girl ?

Also, if I ever get to date a healthy partner - also very unlikely - I understand sex will have to ALWAYS and EVER be condom-only based, but how about 

- Healthy partner providing oral sex on me ?  
- Healthy partner providing hand-job on me ? 
My feeling is that both of the above are an absolute NO-GO, but inquiring if any documented feedback,

Yes, your HSV-2 provides great immunity against an oral infection of either type. It’s like a 1 in 50,000 shot.

Its all about risk and risk acceptance. I have sex with my HSV-2 partner, no condoms or antivirals - no holds barred!

      @clarke53 without a swab that’s a hugely risky call!

      How long has this happened to you? What was swabbed? Results yet?

      Hi all  i have been to a doctor on 4 seperate occasions since I had unprotected sex with a woman who I later found out has herpes . They have said “it doesn’t look” like herpes . My penis always is red , inflamed anabolic has little red pimples on it.  I am constant uncomfort and pain in my gential areas, tingling , fatigue . None of the drs have done a blood test. I have researched DNA testing as they appear more accurate. I saw a dr this week and he took a swab. It’s always on my mind now because I have just started a relationship and don’t know if I should tell her. I’m scared she will run a mile . I haven’t told her because the dr said I was fine . I don’t know what do to do .  Any advice would be appreciated . I have a history with depression and this is adding to it

      @clarke53 why do you think you do not have an asymptomatic genital infection. The mouth sores don’t seem to be herpetic.  What protection do you use genitally?
