Hi,

 

Two parts to your question:


Does sperm contain HSV2? This I found the hardest to get information on. In fact I found two types of answer. The first being 'no' and the second being 'can't rule out the possibility'.


Can I pass it through receiving oral sex? Most definitely yes, whether you or your partner have the infection. More on oral sex and herpes here. More about the basic of herpes here.
