    herpes simplex virus 1

    If someone is born with the herpes simplex virus 1 and it's hereditary, can it be passed to their sexual partners, and if so, will there be any outbreaks, and where

    Herpes is not hereditary...its a virus that is transmitted via skin to skin contact.. hence the only way to be born with herpes (which the chance is very slim) is if the mother is having an active outbreak and delivers vaginally.

    When you mention HSV 1 do you know if its oral or genital? If its oral the risk of transmission is there if you kiss (in which case you could catch it orally) or the person preforms oral on you (in which case you could get it genitally) .. now if the person has it genitally already its the same thing .. if you have sex or just skin to skin contact like dry grinding you can get it genitally as well or if you preform oral you can get it orally that way.

    On the bright side the risk of transmission for HSV1 is less then that of HSV2

    It is possible for you to get it in your mouth as well but the chance is very slim since your body is already "use" to the HSV2. It would still be HSV2 that you would catch in your mouth if you were to catch it, the location doesn't determine the type, although HSV1 is typically oral and HSV2 is typically genital..but not always the case.
