Can a person with genital herpes spread the virus thru kissing?

How sure can condoms protect the partner from the virus?

Genital herpes is transmitted thru direct skin on skin contact with the genital area.

Oral herpes is transmitted thru direct skin on skin contact with the oral area.

Condoms help to reduce the transmission of genital herpes by about 40% or so.
