Dating someone who has herpes
Type 1 (HSV-1) is the oral herpes that causes cold sores or fever blisters in and around the mouth. The relationship between them is confusing, because during oral sex, you can transmit oral herpes to the genitals, resulting in genital herpes, and genital herpes can be transmitted to the mouth, resulting in oral herpes.
Oral herpes is so common that many of us get it as children from being kissed by relatives.
Herpes is very common, and so is the tendency to feel awful about having it. Sex educator Ashley Manta writes, “I was rejected countless times.
It got to the point that I started disclosing on the first date just to get it over with.
Then he decided the prostate cancer was caused by his herpes, and he broke up with me. I told him I had genital herpes and that he should use a condom.
We tried that, but he hated condoms and was unhappy with our sex life because of that.
You can prevent the transmission by using condoms for fellatio and “dental dams” (aka “sex dams”) for cunnilingus.Your date who was diagnosed with prostate cancer was wrong to blame this on you.
