There are cases where people can "self-innoculate" themselves with genital herpes. Do you suffer from "cold sores"? If so, they are herpes and all you need to do is touch your lip with hands and touch your genitals with out washing your hands. The herpes virus will be transferred to the genital area and become genital herpes. Herpes is herpes, regardless of the location. You can infect your boyfriend by having sex during acute flareups. Some people can infect even when not acute. You can even infect him (or been infected yourself) by having oral sex when you (or he) have had a cold sore!
