Genital Herpes:How to fulfilling sex life with Genital herpes?

First of all,You can have a fulfilling sex life if you have genital herpes, even though it may be more complicated than it was before your diagnosis. Millions of people have genital herpes around the world. Millions of people are still having sex lives, honestly, openly, with non positive partners, or other positive partners.Now, you must be careful about what you do and when you do it.


1,Do be Honest,tell your partner before having sex.ACCEPT that you have genital herpes.

It would be better that you tell your partner about your herpes ASAP,this will help you have better, more fulfilling genital herpes sex more than anything.Everybody values honesty in relationships and in the bedroom. It’s sexy and deeply fulfilling.

Your partner has to accept this like you have to. They have the right to know about “your condition”. And if they don’t to take the chance of catching the virus, then let them go with love. You’ll find someone else. Even consider using a Herpes Dating Site.

When you find a partner that will accept you (pretty easy to do, trust me), you will be able to practice a deep open intimacy that will make your sex like DYNAMITE. To practice genital herpes sex like this really loving, and well, the way sex should be.

2,Avoid these sexual activities when you have sores on your genitals, or when you feel a herpes outbreak coming on:
Vaginal sex
Anal sex
Receiving oral sex (fellatio, cunnilingus, and analingus)
Between outbreaks, it’s OK to have sex, as long as your partner understands and accepts the risk

3,Do use condoms.
To help prevent infecting your partner, always use a latex condom for vaginal sex, anal sex, and receiving fellatio. Condoms are not guaranteed to prevent infection, but research has shown that they provide some protection. Use a dental dam for cunnilingus and analingus.

4,About oral sex.
As long as you don’t have herpes sores on your mouth, you can perform oral sex on your partner at any time, including when you have an outbreak of genital symptoms. Otherwise, use your imagination. There are many ways people can express themselves sexually without having genital-to-genital or mouth-to-genital contact. Exploring them can enrich your sex life and make up for having to avoid other activities because of genital herpes. Consult a health care professional if you have any doubts about what’s safe and what is not.

5,Take a drug for genital herpes.
One of the reasons the Genital Herpes Virus is spreading so quickly is asymptomatic shedding (when the virus sheds without a visible outbreak).

When you are shedding this way, you could be risking spreading the virus in your sex life and not even feel or see any symptoms of outbreaks.

So what can you do to prevent asymptomatic shedding? Take a suppressive medication like Valtrex or Acyclovir will help tremendously in reducing if not eliminating this shedding.

This will also reduce the number of your outbreaks which means more opportunities to have good safe sex.

Taking suppressive medication will also make your partner feel much safer with genital herpes sex. You want your partner to get as comfortable with this as much as possible. It takes two to tangle under the sheets :-) .

6,The last very important thing: Take it slowly!
About finding your new partner,or having sex with Genital Herpes means going a little slower. Your sex life is not over, it’s just changing.

Also remember,Don’t use an oil-based lubricant, however, because the oil can break down latex. Also, do not use a lubricant containing the spermicide nonoxynol-9. Nonoxynol-9 may cause tiny rips in mucous membranes (such as those on the genitals) that can let viruses like herpes and HIV enter the body more easily.
