    guess if they are both monogamous, that'll work. otherwise, they are open to whatever baggage their other partners bring to the table. thanks for replying.

    Of course. Every time you are with a new partner there are new risks. But for two people who both have genital herpes, there is no risk for them to continue on in a faithful relationship.

    With a few precautions and a lot of imagination, there's no reason genital herpes needs to put a damper on your sex life.

    There are no precautions required when both partners have HSV2. The only time you would possibly avoid sex would be if you have an active flare-up and it is too painful to have sex.
