The person I'm dating has HSV2. He has never had an outbreak.

Could I contract herpes by giving him a handjob? Could I contract herpes by receiving oral sex from him?

Thanks for the help.

no, you aren't likely to contract herpes on your hands from manually stimulating him. If you have open cuts, cracked skin or bitten cuticles, don't do so until they have healed.

Genital herpes is transmitted from contact with the genital area. Unless he has oral herpes too, you won't contract his genital herpes from his performing oral on you.
