Having a sexual relationship during an outbreak?

Recommended Posts

I have been recently diagnosed with herpes simplex 1. So far my outbreaks are mild and not painful for me. I am very comfortable talking about my sex life and what having herpes will mean for my sex life.


I read on webmd about having a fulfilling sex life with herpes. It says you can mutal masturbate (hand stuff) with your parnter as long as you wash your hands immediately after and don't touch other areas. It also mentions the use of sex toys. I would still like to have a sexual relationship with my boyfriend while having an outbreak since it is so mild for me.


Right now I will give him a hand job and we will dry hump. We can still have a very romantic and sensual relationship while I am having an outbreak but I am curious to hear anyone elses sexual relationship experiences during an outbreak.


(PS I know vaginal and anal and receiving oral is not safe during an outbreak)
