I feel as though it is putting all people in a sexual relationship and their future partners in a dangerous and awkward position. There are not only moral but legal obligations to do so. I think it helps to look at this as an ethical problem from a non-STD perspective. For instance, when two people start dating, do both parties generally tell their life stories, every embarrassing thing they’ve ever done, their complete health histories, or past indiscretions? The most common answer is no. I should emphasize that if any of the above awkward things about you ( insert any other personal information in replace of those items above including STDs) were putting the person you were dating at risk, you would be morally and ethically obligated to tell that person.

While Redmond may have testified that he didn’t consider herpes to be a serious infection, Behr’s attorneys suggest that the case demonstrated that genital herpes infection indeed carries serious consequences: The jury was entitled to infer from the evidence, the testimony, their own common experiences and common sense, that people are shocked and appalled by the notion of sexually transmitted diseases; particularly incurable diseases and that contracting such a disease could make one feel like a leper or a pariah. That is because he believes it is his moral duty not to infect someone as he has been infected. Their motion also makes specific reference to the sexual encounter where Redmond told Behr he might be experiencing an outbreak, and indicated that they should not have sexual contact as result. The message this case sends (which I am not advocating) is: do not tell your future partner you have herpes because even if you do, you can get sued if your partner gets the disease. On one hand I think it is important to disclose this to a new partner (I would hate to infect someone) , and on the other hand I feel like if I’ve had this for so long and it’s never been a problem to me or anyone I’ve been with, would I unneccesarily freak them out?

But does an 80-90 accurrate blood test plus a less than 4 transmission rate equal dismissal of concern?

I have sex with people because I enjoy sex and I think I’ll enjoy it with them. I thought it would be a while until I would get to see the guy I liked again, and we’d been fighting a lot over the past few days so I thought, What the hell. It’s a risk you took and it’s a risk your future sex partners are taking. My point is that she is morally obligated to tell her partner, and you implied that it’s their own fault if they get it even if she didn’t say anything because they should just understand the consequences of sex. In the future do I need to tell someone about this before I kiss them? This sounds insane to me. In fact, I’m not convinced that its wrong for me to not tell a sexual partner at all, if I wasn’t having a breakout, and if we used protection. Maybe I’m in denial, but I don’t think that HSV1 is a big deal. I’m not convinced that there is a huge moral obligation to tell someone before you kiss them since chances are that they already have the virus and over half the people they will kiss in their life will have it (including casual kisses). When you do decide to tell your current/future partners, make sure you know the facts yourself!

People can sue for anything, but HSV-1 will not hold up in most if not all cases. With that said, you should both get tested because there’s a good chance he already has HSV-1, which will make him immune or at least highly resistant to acquiring HSV-1 in another location. Just because you shed the virus does not mean a person will get it; many factors must line up for infection, but having sex during a full on outbreak with a negative HSV-1 partner would be a big no no since the viral load is much higher. I don’t think it’s necessarily your moral obligation to disclose since most with oral HSV-1 don’t disclose, which leads to rising rates in genital HSV-1. Matthew Weait: Herpes is a common, manageable sexually transmitted infection. While there is widespread acknowledgement of the importance of practising safer sex and disclosing HIV-positive status to sexual partners, there is similarly widespread international concern (from, for example, UNAids, IPPF and the Open Society Institute) about the adverse public health impact of deploying the criminal law as a response to transmission and the potential for miscarriages of justice. In addition, we might pause to reflect both as to why someone would think that going to the police and reporting a partner is seen as an appropriate response to discovering that one has an STI, and also that the law is prepared to respond in such a draconian way.
