Have been lurking here for a long time. Thought it was about time that there was a thread for people who have genital, oral or both forms of herpes to post personal ads here.
I have genital herpes. And I know there are others out there ! We're looking for love and sex too. If you don't have a profile here, then create one so you can put a personal ad in this thread.
For those of you who are uniformed about herpes and may mock the creation and existence of this thread, here is a brief introduction or education about herpes:
It is one of the most common STD's in the United States. It's estimated that 1 in every 9 sexually active males and 1 in every 5 sexually active females has herpes. Essentially it is a (so far) untreatable virus that manifests as a skin condition. Some people get painful sores/outbreaks frequently and some hardly ever get sores at all.
Regarding diagnosis of whether or not you have acquired herpes, you may get sores fairly soon after infection but it is not uncommon to even take years before a person discovers that he or she has acquired herpes...in the meantime, possibly passing it to other sex partners.
So do people with herpes not bother to join Literotica, are they here but in hiding, or some of you have herpes already and you just don't know it and haven't manifested symptoms yet? I'd like to know.
