Herpes and Dating

Herpes Simplex: Herpes Type 1 and 2

Herpes simplex viruses — more commonly known as herpes – are categorized into two types: herpes type 1 (HSV-1, or oral herpes) and herpes type 2 (HSV-2, or genital herpes). Most commonly, herpes type 1 causes sores around the mouth and lips (sometimes called fever blisters or cold sores). HSV-1 can cause genital herpes, but most cases of genital herpes are caused by herpes type 2. In HSV-2, the infected person may have sores around the genitals or rectum. Although HSV-2 sores may occur in other locations, these sores usually are found below the waist.

What Causes Herpes Infections and Outbreaks?

Herpes simplex type 1, which is transmitted through oral secretions or sores on the skin, can be spread through kissing or sharing objects such as toothbrushes or eating utensils. In general, a person can only get herpes type 2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection. It is important to know that both HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be spread even if sores are not present.

Pregnant women with genital herpes should talk to their doctor as genital herpes can be passed on to the baby during childbirth.

For many people with the herpes virus, which can go through periods of being dormant, attacks (or outbreaks) can be brought on by the following conditions:

  • General illness (from mild illnesses to serious conditions)
  • Fatigue
  • Physical or emotional stress
  • Immunosuppression due to AIDS or such medications as chemotherapy or steroids
  • Trauma to the affected area, including sexual activity
  • Menstruation

What Are the Symptoms of Herpes Simplex?

Symptoms of herpes simplex virus typically appear as a blister or as multiple blisters on or around affected areas — usually the mouth, genitals, or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender sores.

How Is Herpes Simplex Diagnosed?

Often, the appearance of herpes simplex virus is typical and no testing is needed to confirm the diagnosis. If a health care provider is uncertain, herpes simplex can be diagnosed with lab tests, including DNA — or PCR — tests and virus cultures.

How Is Herpes Simplex Treated?

Although there is no cure for herpes, treatments can relieve the symptoms. Medication can decrease the pain related to an outbreak and can shorten healing time. They can also decrease the total number of outbreaks. Drugs including Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex are among the drugs used to treat the symptoms of herpes. Warm baths may relieve the pain associated with genital sores.

How Painful Is Herpes Simplex?

Some people experience very mild genital herpes symptoms or no symptoms at all. Frequently, people infected with the virus don’t even know they have it. However, when it causes symptoms, it can be described as extremely painful. This is especially true for the first outbreak, which is often the worst. Outbreaks are described as aches or pains in or around the genital area or burning, pain, or difficulty urinating. Some people experience discharge from the vagina or penis.

Oral herpes lesions (cold sores) usually cause tingling and burning just prior to the breakout of the blisters. The blisters themselves can also be painful.

Can I date with Herpes?

There is no cure for herpes simplex. Once a person has the virus, it remains in the body. The virus lies inactive in the nerve cells until something triggers it to become active again. But you can join an online herpes dating group.

Sydney Escorts

Escort agencies are companies that provide Sydney escorts for the agency’s clients. The agency typically arranges a meeting between one of its escorts and the client at the customer’s house or hotel room (outcall), or at the escort’s residence (incall). Some agencies also provide escorts for longer durations, who may stay with the client or travel along on a holiday or business trip.[1]


While the escort agency is paid a fee for this booking and dispatch service, the customer must negotiate any additional fees or arrangements directly with the escort for any other services that are not provided by the agency involved, such as providing sexual services (regardless of the legality of these services).

To turn you on

This is the first in a series of articles about ‘things’ that make us more sexually receptive or stimulated.

FOOD as an aphrodisiac


Through the ages, food has been thought to give people special powers, enhance certain senses, change moods, and increase sexual desire. I know that personally, if I’m feeling down, there’s nothing like about a pound of chocolate to lift my mood! Food affects us with a combination of various sensuous reactions – the visual satisfaction of the sight of appetizing food, the olfactory stimulation of their pleasing smells and the tactile gratification afforded the oral mechanism by rich, savory dishes. This all tends to bring on a state of general euphoria conducive to sexual expression.

It’s documented back into the early Egyptian days of folks using certain foods to make someone more attracted to them. One of their ancient secrets to increase a man’s sexual performance was to make a soup from the leg bone of a (humanely, “Halal” slaughtered according to Islam is preferred) cow or sheep. Include fresh onions, garlic, thyme, cayenne and greens. Stew for at least two hours. Effects upon men are immediate and long lasting. Take once a week for sustained, super human benefits. Now who would have thought that?

Spicy Foods are thought to be an aphrodisiac too. Cayenne has many benefits to our systems and one of them is thought to be a sexual stimulant. Not only does it release endorphins into the systems of men and women and build the immune system, but also in men it builds and fans a fire. Loaded with vitamin C, the erotic effects will be most effective shortly after consumption. Cayenne is hot in every way. The more you can stand, the better. The powdered pepper in a soup or sauce that is cooked is best.

Pine seeds appear to have a reputation as an aphrodisiac all around the Mediterranean as well as in the East. Pine nuts can be served as snacks (far better than popcorn during a romantic movie!) and are also a major constituent of some aphrodisiac dishes. Pine nut soup is a favorite and a recipe for it can be found at Here

Grapes and fresh figs, strawberries and raspberries, sorbets and ices are just about the sexiest food you can eat and feed to each other anywhere, anytime. The act of feeding someone, and the oral contact is extremely sensual to both the feeder and the person being fed.

Of course, then there are foods that actually resemble sexual organs, and even certain animal genitalia that are used as sexual stimulants. Seal penises were once big sellers in parts of Indonesia, and lion penises even bigger in Africa. Camels’ humps, sea cucumbers (which swell when touched), snakes, eels, carrots, asparagus, mandrake, gingerroot, bananas,and even rhinoceros horns (ground to a powder and then eaten) all resemble the male sex organ and are eaten as an aphrodisiac. Okra is also penis shaped. The fruit pod of a plant native to tropical Africa, Okra is rich in Magnesium, is a natural relaxant and contains Iron, Folates, Zinc and Vitamin B, all food for the sexual glands – and is well known in many countries for its use as an aphrodisiac. To prepare Okra, cut off the stem end and carefully peel the thick skin, so that the whole pod is edible (caution that you don’t puncture the pod). Then to every 500g of Okra, put in a bowl: 1 cup of vinegar, leave to soak for 30 minutes, then drain and rinse well. Eat raw or you can fry in olive oil, but you must dry the Okra first. Fry with the lid on, to steam and cook at the same time, regularly turning the Okra till lightly brown. Serve with a little lemon juice – delicious. (They taste like asparagus.) You can buy Okra at any gourmet fruit and vegetable shop

Then there are the ‘female’ foods, cherries, dates, figs, artichokes, avocados, and oysters Casanova, the legendary lover used oysters, along with chocolate and champagne, in many of sexual conquests. This combination must have been a good one, since two nuns were among his reported conquests!

Other foods historically considered aphrodisiac include sweet potatoes, chilies, vanilla, onions, tomatoes (called “love apples” in the Renaissance), mushrooms, dove brains, tigers’ whiskers, goose tongues, pine nuts, goat liver, the musk glands of a deer, and believe it or not — Spam (relished by post-WWII Italians).
Lastly – if you need an antidote .. if any of these concoctions work too well – Italian experiments demonstrate that ordinary liquorice can make men loose their sex drive. The results have been reported in New England Journal of Medicine. (A similar decrease in testosterone production can also be achieved by smoking about 10 marijuana cigarettes per week.)

Wrong Number?

Curtis was on the phone with a co-worker, “Hey, can you hold a minute? The other phone is ringing and it may be an answer to
the on-line ad I placed. I placed it in the help wanted for someone to clean my office. No, I didn’t use this number, I used the
line for the computer – 5787. Great, be right back.”



Running into the living room from his office he grabbed the phone on its fifth ring, “Hello?”

He thought that the person had hung up but he stayed on the line and listened. Sure that someone was there he repeated,
“Hello? Are you calling about the ad?”

He heard the loveliest voice answer, “Yes. Is this a bad time to talk? I can call back if you’re busy.”

“No, no. This is a perfect time to talk. How are you and thanks for answering my ad. I’m pretty desperate.”

She didn’t respond for a moment looking down at the number she had copied off the personal ads on line – 5786 and didn’t
remember anything in the ad saying desperate.

He heard her voice change and she sounded almost worried, “Desperate? Well I can’t say the same but your ad on line was
rather interesting so I thought I’d call and see if you wanted to talk about what you need.”

Curtis thought he met his dream-cleaning worker. All he could think of was he just needed help dusting and maybe filing all his
papers. He thought her asking about his needs made her one of the best candidates for the job that had called. He chuckled and
answered, “Well, I’m really kind of a plain and boring man and just need some help getting myself together. I wouldn’t take
much of your time and I’d be really grateful.”

Lindsey liked his sense of humor. She had figured he was quiet from what his on-line personal ad had said, “I’m quiet and
slightly boring. Could use you to help me with a little fixing up and to get it all together – help me and I think I might be quite a
catch. We can start out with just a phone call 666-5786- call me!”

Curtis thought of his ad that he put in the Help Wanted, “Wanted – HELP – someone to help get my office in some kind of order
so I can find myself – call 666-5787.”

Lindsey laughed, “Well, I’m very organized so I should be able to get you together in no time. I don’t mean to sound forward
but would you like to meet for coffee? Yours is the first ad that I’ve answered where I even liked the person’s voice. You sound

Curtis thought, great! An employee and one that thinks I already sound nice. He would’ve just preferred to discuss salary over
the phone but then thought about his friend Roger who always interviewed prospective employees over a lunch so he said,
“Great, how about lunch or dinner. We can get to know each other and decide if we want to pursue this further?”

Lindsey thought that sounded fine and safe to see if she really wanted to start dating him, “Okay, when and where do you think
we should have our first meeting?”

Curtis thought he would like to meet as soon as possible since he wanted his office cleaned by the weekend when he had a date
coming over. He had been asking Janet out for months and she had finally said yes. He didn’t think she sounded very
enthusiastic about the date but she had said yes and that is what he had wanted so having a clean apartment was now a must.
He answered, “Well now that I’ve spoken to you I’d like to meet you as soon as possible. I’d like to talk today so this weekend
can be a special one. Can you meet me for dinner tonight? Something informal like pizza? Oh, by the way my name is Curtis. – I
don’t even know yours but I know everything is going to work out great.”

Lindsey gave him her name and they agreed on a place to meet for pizza both very satisfied that their first phone call went very

After hanging up from Lindsey, Curtis went to the other phone, “Roger? Hey, thanks for holding on. I’ve met the cleaning girl of
my dreams. Everything will be on target for my date with Janet. I’m meeting Lindsey for dinner and I’ll bet she’ll be cleaning by

Lindsey went to the phone and called her girlfriend, “Cory? He sounded so positive about everything. I mean it was like he
knew everything would work out between us before we even meet. And, he wants to go out to lunch so this weekend can be a
special one for us. He was so relaxed on the phone it was great. He didn’t even mention about sex or why I answered his
personal ad. He was just glad I called. Well, I have to get going or I won’t make it to the restaurant on time and I think that
would be important to him.”

Lindsey raced around her apartment getting ready to meet Curtis. She wore a new light blue summer dress with thin shoulder
straps and a low scoop neck. The dress landed mid thigh and she slipped her long shapely legs into a pair of ankle-strap, blue,
spike heel shoes. Brushing her auburn, shoulder-length hair she finally was satisfied with her appearance. Spraying her favorite
perfume, Musk by Alyssa Ashley over her shoulders she left her apartment to meet her first on-line date. He had told her to
look for a medium built man wearing a pair of blue jeans, a blue Tee shirt and he would meet her outside the pizza parlor.

It was a short walk to the restaurant and she spotted him as she was crossing the street. As she started to walk down the
sidewalk to the restaurant he turned and saw her and walked to meet her. As he walked up to her she had expected him to say
something about how nice she looked but instead he extended his hand to shake hers and said, “Hi, I’m Curtis and thanks for
meeting me here.” She shook his hand and stammered that she was glad he has asked her. All she could think of was that he
was the nicest looking man with the nicest smile she had met in a long time. She gazed at him liking his blue eyes and brown hair.
She smiled up at him and they walked into the restaurant.

The dinner was about everything but the job he wanted to hire her for. They had so many other things in common that dinner
was over and the waiter had brought the check before he even brought up the subject of salary and what he wanted her to clean
so he just said, “Look, I know we didn’t cover my ad very much. Would you like to come over to my place? It’s just around the
corner and that way we can have a cup of coffee and you can see my place. After you see it you may change your mind about
the ad.”

She had thought that was an odd way to ask someone over but he seemed very shy when it came to personal things so she just
replied that she’d love to. She had already decided that she wanted him. It wasn’t just that they had a lot in common, it was just
nice not to be pressured during dinner with innuendoes about sex or this coming weekend. She smiled and answered, “Coffee
sounds great and so far I’m glad I answered the ad.” She was actually more than glad and every time he smiled at her she could
feel her nipples harden as her thoughts went to the fantasy of his lips kissing them. All she knew at this time was that for once
she wanted a man and she wasn’t going to question why but just hopefully be in his arms later that night.

At the apartment they sat in the living room and then he said, “Well, do you want to see my office?”

Lindsey laughed, “Your office? Well, okay.”

As they walked into his office he said, “Well you may as well just tell me what a horrible mess it is. I told you I needed help
getting organized.”

Lindsey walked around his office and turned saying, “Well it really just needs some organizing and filing. Maybe some stacked
bins for your papers and some place to stack all the magazines.”

Curtis laughed, “You’re wonderful! That’s just what I need – someone to just help me get things in order. Maybe we should
talk salary and when you can help me?”

Lindsey smiled, “Oh don’t be silly. I’ll help you and you don’t have to pay me to do that.”

They had walked back into the living room and Curtis was not quite sure what to do. He really found he liked Lindsey and
would like to date her. But he didn’t think it would be a good idea to date someone that he wanted to work for him. Sitting next
to her on the couch he was surprised when she moved closer next to him. He automatically put his arm around her and she
leaned against him snuggling in. His mind was reeling from the feelings that started. All he wanted at that moment was to tip her
chin up and kiss her. He wanted more. Finally when she snuggled more and looked up at him he had to do something to bring
reality back and stuttered, “Lindsey, about my ad to work for me, can we forget it?”

She looked shocked, “What ad to work for you. I answered the one you put in the personals. She quickly took out her
notepaper and showed it to him”

He looked at the phone number in the ad and realized she dialed the wrong number. All of a sudden the entire night made sense
to him – it was all a mistake. He groaned, “Oh shit! Oh Lindsey, I’m so sorry. I mean I’m not sorry I met you but I just figured
it all out. Lindsey, my number is 5787 – your ad is 5786 – you called the wrong number!”

Lindsey realized what happened but now didn’t care and stammered, “Well, it doesn’t have to be, does it?”

Curtis looked into her brown eyes seeing the want for him and as his lips came down on hers he whispered, “Best damn wrong
number I ever had.”

Her arms wrapped around him and he felt her pulling him to her. His body was on fire like it had never felt before. He was rock
hard and needing her. He kissed her deeply and his hands slid over her slender shoulders to her breasts. When he heard her
sigh in pleasure his hands began to massage her breasts as his kisses got hotter and more passionate.

In a few moments the blue dress floated gently to the floor followed by panties and more masculine jeans and tee shirt. His hand
never left her and he hugged her to him kissing her on the neck, whispering, “I know this isn’t how we were suppose to be but I
don’t care. I want you. Do you want me?”

Lindsey gazed with want and need into his eyes and answered, “From the moment I saw you in front of the restaurant I knew
this was right.”

His mouth kissed its way over her shoulder blade, lower until he was licking her nipples. He heard her whisper how good it felt
and that it was just like she had imagined his lips would feel. Part of him wanted to ask when she had imagined it but her nipples
tasted too good and he began to bite lightly and pull on them. As her whispers became a woman’s whimpers of need his hand
slid lower between her legs. Pushing her thighs wider apart Curtis slid his hand over her mound…cupping her soft curls. Slowly
his fingers slid between the soft folds of her lips and he found her wet and wanting. Lower his hand gently slid until his finger slid
within her depths. He heard himself groan in the pleasure of finding her wet and needing him. She was kissing his ear and her
whimpers were driving his senses crazy. His mouth suckled on her nipples harder and her hands held his head tighter to them.

His mind was racing to go slower but a passion was ignited between them and they slowly slid down to the cushions on the
couch. Her thighs parted and he fit his body between them at her entrance. He managed to ask one more time, “Lindsey are you

When her answer was to pull his lips to hers he didn’t wait for another answer. Gently pushing and thrusting his hips his
hardness slid into the wet folds of her body. Her sigh of pleasure drove him to sink himself to the hilt into her heat. He felt her
legs wrap around his waist and he began to move back and forth inside her. With each thrust he wanted to be with her more
and more. As each sigh and whimper from her lips sounded like a melody to him he began to move faster. He felt her arching
into his thrusts to take all he had to give and more. When she whispered that she wanted him it was all he could take and with a
groan of need he came hot and hard inside her. He could feel her reach her peak as he was filling her with his need and her
body clench around him. Together their breathing, whimpers and groans of sated pleasure filled the quiet apartment. As his
senses returned to his body and his mind cleared of thoughts of need he slid from her warmth.

Sitting up he pulled her next to him grabbing a blanket and snuggling with her under it. He finally kissed her on the head and
chuckled as he kiddingly said, “Uh, you’re not going to charge me now for helping me with my office are you?”

Smiling up at him Lindsey replied, “I don’t know. Exactly how much were you going to offer to pay me? I didn’t know at the
time I could get paid for doing something I was going to enjoy doing so we may have to renegotiate?”

He laughed, “Oh fine. When it was the wrong number you were all mine. Now that we figured out the numbers so to speak you
want me to pay you to help me?”

Lindsey laughed, “Well thinking back how did we ever get the conversations mixed up so badly?” She suddenly got quiet and
didn’t say anything. Then in a low voice she said, “So this weekend was suppose to be special for someone else and that’s why
you wanted the apartment to look extra special?”

The phone rang and Curtis answered it thinking he was as the expression says saved by the bell. It was Janet.

He stuttered into the phone, “Hi, no something came up. I know I’ve been asking you a long time.”

At that moment Lindsey reached for her clothes to get dressed and he blurted out, “Wait, don’t get dressed yet!”

“Uh, no, I was talking to a friend. Look, I’m sorry – I can’t talk now. Well, then hell, fine, we can’t talk at all!”

Part of his mind could not believe he just hung up on Janet after trying to get a date with her for a year but at this moment he
didn’t care about Janet.

Lindsey had one end of her dress in her hand and he had the other. She said, “Curtis, maybe I had better leave. This really has
been rather odd and I feel pretty foolish thinking about this weekend. Plus you thought I was really just here to interview to be
the cleaning girl? I think this has been a mistake!”

Curtis smiled and pulled her closer by tugging on her dress answering, “But to quote someone very wise – it doesn’t have to be.
How about spending a special weekend with me? I’ll even help clean my office if you’ll direct me?”

Laughing she went into his arms whispering, “And all this from a wrong number.”

As his lips came down on hers he repeated, “As I already said, best damn wrong number I ever had.”

The Goodbye Kiss

The Goodbye Kiss


I was reading the “Playboy Advisor” in the barber shop, and a discussion of “The Goodbye Kiss” caught my eye. In a nutshell, the principle is this: Some women say that if they perform oral sex on their mate just before he goes off to work, away on a business trip, or out for an “evening with the boys”, the chances are good that he will be satisfied enough not to be tempted to get involved with another woman.


Do you believe this theory holds true? Do you think it is a good idea? And, men: Is there a chance of convincing your woman that it is true?

When asked her opinion, one woman said that if a man is looking to have sex with another woman, he will do it, oral sex or no oral sex! But, he might hang it over his partner’s head and say (whine), “well, I was just sooooo needy because you rejected me for that nice session of oral sex before I went out that I just couldn’t help myself”.

She added that maybe SOME women would buy that line. Especially the ones who felt sooooo guilty because while their partner was out for the evening “with the boys”, she was entertaining her OWN lover at home! Women, you know, can perform an unlimited number of acts of oral sex in any given evening without suffering diminution of their performance.

But, is it possible that a man who has been sent out of the house with a fond memory of his lover’s devotion is less likely to stray? And, for that matter, is he less likely to have a need for outside sexual activity?

Yes, a man leaving his home with the memory of his lover’s devotion is likely less liable to stray. But he should be faithful, oral sex or no oral sex. Is a man’s fidelity based only on his lover’s most recent sexual favors? What determines a man’s decision to remain faithful to his partner? Is he requir- ing oral sex as a proof of her devotion?

He should never absolutely require oral sex as proof of his lover’s devotion, but it is a nice gesture! And, it may help to lower the suspicions of his partner, which of course would lead to a stronger union.

Gee! ummmmmmmm……..well, I don’t think I would still be going out with the boys after that! Would YOU?

Why not? It should do wonders for your bowling or poker concentration!

<grin> I can see it now:

He: Okay, hon. I’m off for a night of poker now! See you later! She: Now, darling! Haven’t we forgotten something? You know you must have your “Goodbye Kiss” before you go! He: Awwww, Honey. Do I hafta? <scrunching toe in carpet> She: This is good for you, dear. Come with me. <leading recalcitrant husband to bedroom> He: Awww, gosh! You never let me have any fun! You know that I’ll be too pooped to play! <big pout> She: What did I say! You get in this bedroom right now! He: Oh, all right! <throwing himself on bed >

It sorta reminds me of the coach getting his team ready to go out and play basketball: he checks their uniforms and makes sure all his players have gone to the bathroom. I guess the wife has a few things to check too. Come to think of it, maybe women need a “Goodbye Kiss” just before they go out too!

So, how about it: do you support the “Goodbye Kiss” concept? Don’t you think it is a good idea? Don’t you think all couples should adopt the practice?
