100 free mobile sex cams - Lesbian dating with herpes

Normally, I’m a very positive person but, this has really made me feel wicked shitty.

Unfortunately, I tested positive for genital herpes (HSV 1) two days ago and I’ve been extremely depressed about it.

If we are having sex (digital, oral, or anal) with someone with whom we are not in a long term sexually monogamous relationship where we’ve both been tested for STIs at least twice, we should be practicing safer sex. Some STIs have latency periods, meaning that you may have been infected, but the infection won’t show up yet on an STI screening.

So, even if you’re clean on your first test after becoming monogamous, you still want to use barrier protection until you and your partner have both been screened a second time at least 3-6 months later and are still found to be infection free.

What does safer sex look like for lesbians who don’t want to pass HSV 1 (oral herpes) or HSV 2 (genital herpes) to their partners?

The first step is to recognize that we need to practice safer sex.

A: If consent is sexy, informed consent is even sexier.

Unfortunately, our partners don’t always care to or know to inform us of their STI status in advance of playtime so that we can make informed decisions about our sexual health.

While at the lowest risk for STIs of any sexually active group, lesbians have got to also be the worst at practicing safe sex.

We all know what we’re supposed to do, or at least we think we do, but we rarely do it.

46% of lesbians (so assume 46% of the women that you will sleep with) have oral herpes, and 7.9% have genital herpes.
