yes you can get herpes and maybe you have them
well i never did this because i was afraid that you could get something from it, can you herpes even if they do have an out break present
You won't get herpes from this in the absence of symptoms. Genital herpes is rarely spread to the mouth.
Herpes goes from the mouth to the genitals much easier than the other way around.
Oral sex is low risk for stds, but its possible. The only one to worry about from just licking the sides is syphilis. If you did "full" oral, for lack of a better description, you could get oral gonorrhea.
