Question regarding GHSV1 and oral sex...

Recommended Posts

ZippoFluid

My girlfriend and I both have HSV1 in our genital regions... I was wondering how safe it is to perform oral sex on one another (when neither of us have active outbreaks)... Is there a strong chance that we’d spread the virus to our mouth areas?

If you have both had this for 6 months to a year, you will have developed the antibodies to HELP prevent you from getting it orally but the possibility exists, it's slight, but possible. Of course if you do, you know not to do it during an outbreak or prodromal symptoms or when you're feeling under the weather with a cold or flu.

Having it in one location provides a considerable amount of protection from being infected elsewhere if it's not a new infection.
