Possible for a woman to give a man herpes during oral?
OK so I have a few questions. I heard HSV-1 usually infects oral mucosa and HSV-2 genital mucosa. So my question is... are the odds of a woman giving a man herpes during oral sex pretty low? I'm assuming she would have to A.) have HSV-1 in her mouth since HSV-2 is pretty uncommon orally B.) be shedding virus from a sore at the time and C.) have the HSV-1 virus take hold on the man's penis though it doesn't prefer that environment. Correct?

Say a woman just uses her tongue on the penis for a few seconds and kisses it but doesn't insert it in her mouth. Is transmission still very possible or not very likely that way because there was little or no contact with the male's genital mucosa?

Thanks!

If a woman OR man in Oral sex when they suffer from HSV1 Orally it is very possible to transmit it to the Genitals with or without an outbreak present, if he/she or both do NOT have HSV1 Orally then there is nothing to transmit it's that simple !!!
