A Good Question To Start A Conversation


Recommended Posts

If you disclose to someone you mutually want to sleep with, but when you do they reject you. Here's something you can say that might make them think.

"Before I told you I have herpes, would you have slept with me?"

"Yes."

"So if the odds of you getting herpes from me are exactly the same before you knew I have herpes, and now that you know, what's the difference?

I think this could be a good conversation starter, because literally nothing has changed. I think this is something to think about also in terms of not disclosing as well, because assuming you use protection, don't have sex during an outbreak and/or use suppressive meds, what's the difference between them knowing you have it and them not knowing? Nothing. The only difference is they now have fear based on ignorance.
