Ask An Educator: Oral Sex w/ Herpes

30 Sep

“If herpes not present can I have oral sex”


safe sexUnless you are having protected oral sex, the short answer is NO.

Herpes can be VERY contagious and, even if the sores aren’t present, you still have to take viral shedding into account. If you are with a partner who has herpes or if you don’t know their status, or if you yourself have herpes DO NOT have unprotected oral sex. Always use a dental dam or a condom to prevent spreading the virus.
