I am a 35 yo female and have HSV2. I have your book so I know the stats on transmitting the virus through vaginal sex, but wonder if there is any way to quantify the risk of transmission through receiving oral and manual(I believe manual is essentially none). I would like to have a % risk to share with my partner so he can make an educated decision. From my understanding after reading your book, it seems this type of transmission is less likely than with vaginal/anal, but would like a more precise risk assessment if possible. Thank you!
Unfortunately, we have no data on this question and believe me, I wish we did. It is a very common question. We do know that oral HSV 2 is uncommon and when acquired, is unlikely to shed much or recur often at all.
