THE STORY:

We received this letter last year. It reflects the concerns of many people who've contacted us and could have been written by any one of millions of people with Herpes or other sexually transmitted infections who are in a miserable state of uncertainty about the safety of having sex. Because of this universal dilemma we need to create a topic page on this subject to put peoples hearts and mind at ease with smart strategies for intimacy with STD's. "Two years ago I learned I have incurable genitals herpes from a routine annual STD screening, and I went into a sexual deep freeze. I haven't had sex with another person since. How can I? Herpes is a bad joke on television about someone who is dirty and slutty. Someone who is unclean. People with AIDS are tragic; people with herpes are contemptible. Herpes is telling someone you want to make love to that you have a painful, ugly disease that they could get if you’re physically intimate together. Herpes is rejection and isolation, having sex through plastic, never feeling someone's bare skin again. I can't face sex, or the magnitude of the loss of it as I knew it, so for two years I haven't acknowledged it. Now I have to face that I don't want to live my life as a sexual hermit, I don't think I can. I love sex. But what's left of it now that's good? I'm a living contagion." Not true! There are safe, comfortable strategies for sex with herpes. Please see our Safer Sex page and start living a full sex life again! And please help us create a special web page addressing this issue that includes safe sex strategies and resources.
