can herpes be spread through Semen / Sperm?

On many sites it says herpes cannot be spread through bodily fluids like blood, semen, and vaginal fluid.... however on many sites it also say that it can! Which one is right? This is very important to me.... thank you!

herpes can be present in semen , urine, vaginal fluids and saliva.  Just contact with those isn't the risk though, it's more the heat and friction of the actual sex act that is the issue.  there are some documented cases of folks contracting hsv2 through artificial insemination though.  

I find it incredibly unlikely the person who felt that they contracted hsv2 orally from catching someone's semen in their mouth really contracted it that way.
