I will try to make the question more clear. 1) If I perform unprotected oral sex on a male, how likely is it for them to get hsv1 on their genitals? How about if I perform it on a woman? 2)If a male performs oral sex on me, how likely is it for them to get hsv2 from my hsv2 (if I have it)? Is this any different for a woman? I know its low (and slightly higher for women?) but is there an exact number for both these questions
3) I have listened to a few podcasts now about hsv2 and disclosure and there seems to be this general idea that having sex with someone who knows they have hsv2 is “safer” than having sex with someone who doesn’t, especially in the sex industry. What is your expert opinion on this?
4) Do you have an expert opinion on disclosure? Should I tell past individuals that I had any kind of sex with about these results?
5) Can you give me an “explain it like I’m 5” summary of the western blot?
