In the JAMA article :Condoms Associated with Moderate Protection Against Herpes2, it states "the risk of acquiring the virus increased significantly with increasing frequency of unprotected sex acts."It would seem to me then that the use or nonuse of condoms would be more of a risk than just a 2% vs. 1% difference. Were the people in this study also on suppressive meds?

There are many JAMA articles on herpes. I can better help explain things to you if you send me the full title or the link to the abstract - thanks!

the studies they used were all done on folks not on suppressive therapy.

consistent condom use reduces transmission of hsv2 by 30-50% depending on what study you read. You get the most protection by using them properly - when the clothes come off, the condom goes on, not just wait until actual penetration to put the condom on.
