I agree that the risk of HSV transmission through mutual masturbation is extremely low if not absent. The only part I get concerned about when there may be an outbreak present is if the person with the herpes extensively masturbates their own genitals and then masturbates the genitals of the uninfected person, particularly if there is a lot of lubrication around. Then, the risk is still low but might be a bit higher. Mutual masturbation in the absence of the person with herpes masturbating themselves first is no risk.
Does that help? I’m sure you get the visual picture I’m talking about – I sure do!
