So this might be a weird topic to bring up. Lately I've started to get this huge anxiety about getting herpes from a girl. It's up to the point where I'm even having trouble kissing girls now because it's the only thing I can think about when I'm being intimate with someone.
I know it's crazy.
I was hoping that maybe someone might have some words of wisdom? How do yall big players feel about stuff like this? Is it just me who gets anxious and in my head about stuff like this?
I'm sorry for bringing negative vibes and for not posting for about two years! I've been out living the irl-life. But when I started to have these thoughts I immideately thought about this forum, there are tons of people here with some life experience after all...
This is the kind of thing for a mental health professional.
I’ve seen several other guys on GLL with this irrational STD fear, and not a single one of them ever got better. In fact their mental health seemed to get worse as they posted.
Gotta actually talk to a psychologist or psychiatrist. Herpes is only contagious during an outbreak, so unless you’re kissing girls with visible cold sores around their mouths, you don’t have anything to worry about.
That said, me saying this isn’t going to help you. These types of obsessive thoughts are not normal (being scared to kiss a girl because there’s a .001% chance of getting herpes) something is wrong with your thought process and you should fix it. There’s a whole field of medicine dedicated to this, fortunately.

Well here's one perspective. I may, or may not have herpes. It's so insignificant I seriously don't know. I guess from the lesser symptoms it would more likely be HSV-1. The last time I *might* have had a breakout was like 2015, 3-4 years ago. Honestly, I'm not sure because it was after a whole weekend long of sex. My GF may have just given me a toothy blowjob that broke the skin and fucked so much I was rubbed raw.
The thing is, my bang number is triple digits. I figure by now I've been with many girls with herpes. Maybe it freaks you the fuck out. But for me, if I have a few pimples on my junk for a few days out of every 3-4 years...I'm really not worked up about it.

And gay or straight, he's still pretty pruductive!
Anyway, I went and had a chat with the psych today. We talked for like an hour and it felt good to speak with someone about this pretty silly problem of mine. I'm gonna go the professional route with this and I won't post anything more about this on the forum, I don't wanna spread anymore negativity.
Thank you everyone for your answers. You are all very kind!

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
