Partner has HSV1. I have HSV2. Can he give me oral?

Recommended Posts

The thinking at the moment (and I say that because I've had H for over 50 yrs and I've seen "thinking" change over the years) is that HSV2 generally protects most people pretty well from HSV1... but that HSV1 doesn't give *as much* protection from HSV2. So yes, you can receive oral and you *should* be ok but I'd refrain in both directions if either of you think you *might* be having an OB ... no need to push your luck when your body is in the "shedding on steroids" phase... :)
