Expert Q & A Answers About partners with herpes

I have HSV-1 and HSV-2...my partner has herpes, too. How can I safely give her oral sex?

I’m a man with HSV-1 and HSV-2, and I am beginning relationships with women who also have HSV. Are there any devices for giving oral sex to women? I know condoms protect in the reverse scenario.

My partner and I both have genital herpes...do we still need to use protection?

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for about six months and we both have genital herpes from previous relationships. We're confused about the subject of oral sex and touching each other. We both want to give and receive, but we're worried about moving the virus to different parts of each other's bodies. Of course, there is always protection that can be used with oral sex, but both of us would really prefer just going natural.
