    Hi there,

     

    I'm sure you found an answer to your question already, but I wanted to answer in case this is helpful to someone else. It's possible to pass oral herpes through saliva, which means that you can contract the virus by sharing eating utensils or a straw. Herpes simplex can't live outside the body for very long, however, so you're less likely to get it from sharing a drink with someone than from kissing them.
