    It's a different strain of the virus that causes cold sores (herpes simplex 1).
    Genital herpes is caused by HSV-2.
    I was apparently born with HSV-1, since I can remember having a cold sore as young as three years old, and I'm fairly certain nobody had ever stuck their dick in my mouth at the time.
    About 75% of the population is infected with HSV-1, which is highly contagious via kissing, drinking glasses, surfaces, etc, although only about 10% of the population has active virus at any given time. HSV-1 (and, I guess, genital herpes as well) tends to lie dormant in the nerve endings for years at a time and then become active and cause symptoms during times of stress or illness.

    People can, however, get HSV1 in the genital region, and HSV2 in the mouth/throat region. And, HSV1 is generally transmitted by kissing or having close facial contact with someone who has HSV1.

    I know, it's all my fault. That's why I keep my handy port-a-burqa in my purse at all times, ready to cover my shame in the event that any men approach. I wouldn't want to tempt them to sin.

    I think the majority of us would much rather you tempt us.

    Not necessarily to the point of "sin", but the tempting's fine.

    The last thing on earth I want is for my 60-year-old parents to talk to me "candidly" about oral sex. I think I'd rather undergo another colonoscopy.

    I don't see any urgent need to talk with kids about this. They can figure it out on their own. Though maybe mentioning the possible STDs would be a good idea... they do that in school already though.

    I don't see how mutual masturbation isn't sex, but masturbation is. But then, sex is pretty hard to define. It's easy enough to know what an orgasm is and what it isn't... once you get into what's causing the orgasm, things get tricky. Vaginal is all everyone can agree to include as "sex".


    It's the only "sex" that some posters here ever get.
    Does cybersex count?
