We are not experiencing out breaks right now. This weekend will be our first encounter and we are discussing the details we need to understand before hand...such a good person she is for open discussion.

ANSWER:

Just remember herpes is spread by coming in direct oral or genital contact with the virus.

It isn't possible to re-infect a partner with genital HSV-2. Once an individual has HSV-2 it last a lifetime. Sometimes friction from sex contributes to genital herpes outbreaks. Having genital HSV-2 doesn't protect a person from catching oral herpes. If a partner doesn't have oral herpes and performs oral sex on a partner with genital HSV_2 that would be oral negative to genital HSV-2 positive. HSV-2 spreads to a partner orally about 5-10% of the time. If oral sex is performed on a person with genital HSV-2 the chance of the virus spreading orally wouldn't be high. I would recommend using a condom to perform oral sex. Dental dam could also be used for oral sex.
