I'd like to have sex with a woman who has HSV1 in her mouth.

Customer Question

I'd like to have sex with a woman who has HSV1 in her mouth. She doesn't currently have cold sores but she said she has the virus.
1- Is it safe for me to give her oral sex?
2- Is it safe if she gives me oral sex without condom? How about with condom?
3- What are other risks?

yes, you can give her oral sex.

oral sex on you with a condom cuts the risk of herpes spread to you by 50% from 4% to 2%

you don't have to worry about HIV.

let me know if you have questions.
