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I have withdrawn from my friends and family, and completely unable to try to date, flirt or anything,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!

      It is already a hassle getting started with making it.  I end up with more questions than I can find answers for, but stumble on...  I am retired so feel like my job is (finally) taking care of myself.  I have had few health issues, generally healthy--except for the H bomb.  If i have to make liposomal 2x a week, i dont think it will be a big deal.  The big deal is getting the equipment and getting started i think.  I make kombucha, which is sort of like having a not-very-demanding pet.  I dont mind doing this kind of stuff.  But will probably keep liposomal capsules or packets on hand for times when its inconvenient to make it. I cant believe u r sucking down 6 g of AA at a time!  The most i drink with AA is 2 g at a time.  I am currently taking 4 g AA and 9 g liposomal C in caps/packets. The protocol evolves.  I am so thrilled to not have BO's that i dont care what i have to do. They ruined my life.  I am glad u r finally getting good results with your fight against H.  Have u tried drinking the AA thru a straw with the straw toward the back of your mouth to avoid teeth?  I would think baking soda and water swished around in your mouth after drinking the AA would neutralize any remaining acid.  My teeth have pretty strong enamel, so i dont worry about it (but dont do 6 g AA at a time).  If u r worried about acid erroding tooth enamel, why arent u worried about 6 g of AA at a time going down the soft tissues of your esophagus and onward?  Im not saying its wrong, just wondering.   
    • Not sure what I’ve got
      Additionally to the above and to answer you question more precisely, it had been 12 days (probably more) before I started to get itchy (I could swear the rash started as insect bites, each very distinct - I am in a hostel so there is a chance it was bedbugs). Before that it had been a week or two.  I also had been cycling intensely in 35 plus degree heat (temps were around 38 degrees today. And the spot where the rash showed up is the exacts spot where my upper thigh rubs the seat. Finally, my clothes were washed by a laundry service, and the T-shirt I was wearing that was washed in the same load had been irritating my skin.

      @Sabayou have no need to be concerned with genital herpes. Your symptoms are not those of herpes.  If you have concerns, seek out the type specific HSV testing.

      Yes, really would be an improvement not have to Carry the burden of transmission...many people are researching cures and treatments, but sadly everything takes too much time
