I can never not reblog this. So dope.
I do find it funny that lesbians are perceived as man-hating but gay men are not perceived as woman-hating, and in fact are often illogically shielded from accusations of misogyny simply by being gay
weird it’s like male privilege works even when queerness is involved who knew
Has having herpes negatively affected your sex life?
In a short answer ‘No’ in a long answer ‘Not really?’
Each person’s relationship with themselves, with sex, with current and future partners will be unique. A better question is, does HSV have to negatively affect your
sexlife? Nope, not one bit, but negativity is relative.
Do I have to self care more and be aware of stress? Yes.
Do I have to have a conversation with my partners that may result in us not being sexually involved? Yes (but it hasn’t happened to date!)
Do I get hurt over people shaming HSV casually as if they or 10 of their friends don’t have some form of it? Yep, frequently.
But, more importantly-
Am I better able to advocate for myself sexually now?
Am I better informed about my body, health and safety?
Am I learning the importance of intimacy and putting myself first?
Am I seeking out healthy, emotionally fulfilling romantic and non romantic relationships?
Am I living in the moment more and worrying about other people’s judgements less?
Am I more in tune with my body?
Yes, yes and fuck yes.
So, in short, Yes Hsv has changed me, but mostly it’s increased my own awareness and I can’t say that that’s negative.
if you can’t laugh during sex, you might not be doing it with the right person
cuddling is probably one of the most passionate forms of love there is because you just feel so safe and close to the person and it feels like all your worries go away and it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world

If I’ve ever crossed your mind in a sexual nature and you never thought to share this with me I will be offended.
