Herpes is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the virus Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV).
Unfortunately not everyone has been able to get a good education regarding herpes, and different peoples’ reactions to hearing their partner has herpes can reflect the education the person has gotten (or not gotten) about the virus.
You may find that some people are not bothered by herpes at all, whereas other people will need more education.
This includes both penetrative sex and sexual activities where there is skin-to-skin contact.
Herpes can be very frustrating and confusing for a lot of people, however no one should ever be made to feel untouchable.
It can occur on the skin around or sometimes inside the penis or external genitals, vagina or internal genitals, anus, and mouth. There are two types of herpes simplex virus: herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2).
For many people, herpes is a skin condition that comes and goes without causing problems. HSV-1 is commonly found around the mouth and is often called "cold sores".
For most people, outbreaks happen less often over time.
Herpes is passed through vaginal, oral, and anal sexual contact.
