    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    If you're talking about HSV orally, you cannot pass it on to someone if they perform oral sex on you.

    What if I carry the HSV 2 virus but it is not erupting, can a male partner perform oral sex on me safely?
    georgiagail replied to An_255927's response:
    No. There is always the risk of the virus "shedding" even without a lesion present.
