Ive lived two and a half decades of faithful communication with my partners, safe sex, condoms, etcetera and I finally got burned.

First tinder date and I get herped. She was so dark I couldn't tell.

Guess I'm done having sex now.

Are you new to this planet? About 1 in 4 people have herpes. It hasn't stopped anyone else from having sex. There are antivirals that prevents the majority of transmission between partners. It's manageable, it's not a death sentence. Stop being a whiny pissbaby.

Maybe you don't understand my position completely.
I'm not going to take antivirals, running around being a piece of shit not telling anyone. I'm strictly monogamous, so I now get to go 'hey I know we're connecting and this could be forever but I get blisters around my dick so eventually you'll get them too unless we schedule our sex life forever.'

I'm not doing that to anyone. I wouldn't wish this on my enemies.

--so unless my soulmates blistering too, I'm done. There may be a 25% chance we both have it, but there is a 0% chance anyone is ever going to stay in my life after hearing 'I have herpes'.

Would you? I doubt it very much.

Don't be retarded. No one's telling you to hide it from partners. The point is you're worked up over literally nothing. And there are plenty of herpes-free people who have sex and long term relationships with infected people with no issue and no transmission. A lot of people carry it and show zero outward symptoms. Jesus, educate yourself. You just don't fuck when you have an outbreak. Or you take an antiviral.

Actually, no, changed my mind, don't fuck at all, period, because clearly you're not mature enough to do so if you're this wound up about herpes in 20 fucking 19 and it's better if you never reproduce.

I understand why you would be pissed. I would be pissed too.
I also have a really hard time buying the often-quoted statistic that "over 50%" (or whatever number, it seems to change all the time) of the population already has it.

But why not take antivirals? You've got a disease, so treat it.
Take anti-virals and also be honest with any future partners. It might make random hookups harder, but anyone who's interested in you long term will be able to deal with it.

STIs

One in two sexually active persons will contract an STI by age 25.1
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly 20 million new STIs occur every year in this country, half of those among young people aged 15–24. 2
Even though young people account for half of new STI cases, a recent survey showed only about 12% were tested for STIs in the last year.3
CDC estimates that undiagnosed STIs cause 24,000 women to become infertile each year.4
The total estimated direct cost of STIs annually in the U.S. about $16 billion.5

HPV

Researchers estimate that at least 80% of sexually active people will have an HPV infection at some point in their lifetime.6
CDC data for 2013–2014 show that about 42% of men and 40% of women aged 18-59 had genital HPV at that time.7
HPV is responsible for approximately 31,500 cases of cancer each year, including nearly all cases of cervical and anal cancer, about 75% of vaginal cancer, 70% of oropharyngeal cancer, and 69% of vulvar cancer.8
Within 6 years of the introduction of the first HPV vaccine, there was a 64% decrease in HPV prevalence among females aged 14 to 19 years and a 34% decrease among those aged 20 to 24 years.9

Herpes

Herpes infection is common. About 1 in 8 people aged 14-49 in the U.S. has genital herpes.10
About 1 in 2 people ages 14-49 in the U.S. are infected with HSV-1, which is the typical cause of oral herpes. However, increasing numbers of genital herpes cases are caused by HSV-1.11
Symptoms of genital herpes often go unnoticed. Most people with genital herpes—close to 90%—don’t know they have the infection. 12
Globally, researchers estimate that about two-thirds of the population under age 50—more than 3.7 billion people–are infected with HSV-1. Some 140 million people aged 15-49 are infected with genital HSV-1, primarily in the Americas, Europe and Western Pacific.

Before 'natural philosophy' invented and science invented modern medicine people didn't give a fuck about herpes.

It wasn't until Big Pharma conducted a smear campaign that mo'fickers like you even thought about it.


"Pedro Cuatrecasas, a biochemist who was involved in the discovery, development, and marketing of acyclovir as the head of R&D at Burroughs Wellcome Co. from 1975 to 1985, recalls: "During the [discovery and development] of acyclovir (Zovirax), marketing insisted that there were 'no markets' for this compound. Most had hardly heard of genital herpes, to say nothing about the common and devastating systemic herpetic infections in immunocompromised patients."

know what im sayin?

So which is it? Either 50% of people have it, or it's so rare that people don't even know about it?

It's called being a carrier. Did you skip genetics class at school?

Holy shit your reading comprehension.

You're selectively reading the 'hardly heard about' quote like a tool so let me break it down for you:

In the discovery/development phase of acyclovir which ran from:
>1975 to 1985
Which means:
>People didn't know about and didn't give a fuck about herpes 35 years ago.

Just like most people today who have more than two brain cells to clap together and form a thought with, because it doesn't fucking matter.

So OP, cut off your dick or kill yourself, either way it makes the world a better and smarter place because there'll be one less turd perpetuating idiotic stereotypes and myths about herpes.
