I need information on having sex with herpes

ASK:

Just started a new relationship after being positive for 10 yrs. we both are positive and are going to have sex. Neither of us is interested in “protected” sex. We’re rolling the dice and willing to accept the consequences. We have both been recently tested and are aware of each others results. Needless to say, I’m nervous as hell.

ANSWER:

It’s common to feel nervous before starting a new relationship. Herpes is spread by coming in direct skin-to-skin contact with the virus.¬†Best way to establish compatibly with sex, have protected sex first. Just watch for changes in pH with semen plus the hormones may bring on an OB, so start with protected sex.
