If you receive Oral sex from someone who has Oral Herpes then it can be transfered to your Genitals ..... If you suffer from Oral Herpes and perform Oral sex on someone you have the ability to transmit it to their Genitals ..... so bottom line answer to your question is YES .....

You can't get Genital Herpes from Oral sex you can however get HSV2 Orally from giving Oral sex if the person has HV2 Genitally albeit it's it's not that common for this to happen.

this is not the doctor's forum.  

genital herpes is acquired thru contact with your genital area. if you aren't having contact with your genital area, you can not get genital herpes.  It's not going to travel from your mouth to your genitals just because you contracted it from someone's genitals.

Make more sense?

just keep asking what you need to know until one of us puts it in a way that is more easily understood :)   sometimes what I think is easy as pie to understand isn't to someone else and vice versa!

Ca you get oral herpes from licking a scrotum? I did not see any sores or lesions at the time.
