i got the infection from my boyfriend who had oral herpes and then had gone down on me. but you have it genitally so,if you somehow go from him being down on you to you guys kissing then you down on him, yes you can transfer the virus. but no, you cannot transfer the virus if the infected area has no contact with the others any body part.

i just found out that i have genital herpes so to answer your question, i can try but im not going to say im positive...but i do alot of reading because im married and i dnt want to give it to him...but as far as i knw i will say yes and no...yes if your broke out on your mouth area...but not as likely if your not broke if he has a cut on his penis and you have the virus then it is said that he can get it that way too...but im not positive on that last statement so you might wanna google it too...because if that were true then if you kiss your loved one then they could get it to so there would be no way to prevent them from getting it im gonna say no you cant give it to them by oral sex unless you have an outbreak around your mouth.. sorry if that didnt help..

the answer is no. u can't just by kissing because the virus is on your genitals,however if he performs oral on you he can infact contract the disease orally.
