Herpes sex dating Chatt with a horny housewife
Coupled with a good understanding of herpes and a frank and open discussion with your partner, this can mean a very manageable relationship with herpes.Bottom-line: Is a long term relationship with someone with herpes a life sentence for protected sex?However they, too, will retain the virus for life and be contagious.That’s a lot to parse, but boil it down to this: far more than 1 in 6 Americans between the age of 14 and 49 have HSV-2.HSV-1 is the one that usually causes cold sores around your mouth and lips.
But you don’t have to bring that shit directly into your relationship. The only reason we care about who gave it to us and when is because we shame people for how they got it – by having sex or engaging in sexual activities.
1 in 6 means that if you’ve had three sexual partners in your life, then there’s a chance that one of them has had herpes and an even greater chance that one of them has had a partner with herpes.
So, when I tell you that your partner disclosing to you that she—and therefore maybe you—have herpes, I really mean that it’s not that earth-shattering.
That virus can (but may not) be transmitted to any surface of someone else’s body, via physical contact.
If it does transmit, there’s an ~80% chance that they won’t recognize any symptoms from the infection.
