Question: Herpes transmission


 hodge123 - Tue Jan 01, 2008 11:01 pm

I am unsure about this after reading others questions. Is it possible to get herpes from licking a chest. I am really affraid, I was an idiot and got too drunk and my friends and I went to a strip club. I don't really remember all what happened but I know I licked the stripers chest, I really don't know how many times. Should I be worried, is there a test I can take to get this off my mind? I feel horrible, I'm never drinking again.

Thank you.

User avatar Hi,
It sounds like some good may come of this experience if your New Year's resolutions include changing your drinking behavior. Congratulations!

Licking the chest would be a very unlikely way to transfer herpes but as you know, drinking can lower your inhibitions and next time the activity could be much more dangerous. Herpes is transmitted through bodily fluids with oral or genital interaction involved.

Best wishes.
