I just can't seem to get a clear answer on this one. If I am receiving oral sex from a partner with genital herpes, am I putting myself at risk? Does the virus just run through the whole body in the saliva or is it just in the vaginal region? Please help before I take any chances.
As long as your partner is sure they don't have type 1 or 2 orally, you are safe. The virus does not travel from genitals to your mouth via saliva. Now if you perform oral on your partner and they have genital h, you take the risk of contacting it orally yourself.Put it this way, you must come in contact with the area where your partner has H.Does this make sense?
You have pretty much no risk Tina. Both of you hsv-2 genitally and hence already have the antibodies. Hsv-2 is very rare as it is in the mouth region, so even is someone had hsv-2 genitally and someone who does not have it would preform oral on the positive person, the negative person would run a very very low risk of contracting it orally. Hsv-1 is much much easier to transmit to both the upper and lower region.
I agree with youandme....I've had HSV-2, for almost 2 yrs. now and my thrill-guy, has it there as well...Actually, he is the transmitter. Anyway, we have oral, very often and NEITHER one of us has passed it from the lower region to the upper region....I'm assuming that we both have the antibodies for it. So, it must be pretty hard to transmit, this H-crap.....Peace, -ShinyOrn
