Numerous questions come up regarding herpes and safe sex and specifically use of condoms. Here's a quick rundown on the dos and don'ts:
Many people are asymptomatic and don't even know that they have herpes so your rule should be to always use a condom with a new or current partner. Latex condoms are the best .

others of you.
After a steamy night of making out and resisting the
temptation to indulge all of our desires, we spent the next day lounging in the
park, basking in the sun, and enjoying our new interest. Then, out of nowhere, he pushed back
