I just have been wondering..
if let's say a guy has herpes and you give him a blowjob, will you get cold sores?
it's been confusing me..
or vice versa, if a girl has herpes and guy eats her out, will he get cold sores?

or, if it's on their lips and they blow/eat out will the person get herpes down there?

Okay, so there are two types of herpes, oral and genital.

Oral is most commonly acquired orally; genital is most commonly transferred genitally. However, sometimes people contract oral herpes on their genitals or genital herpes on their mouths.

So, if a guy had genital herpes, you could contract it orally via fellatio, especially if you do that without using a condom. If someone had oral herpes who ate you out, same deal, and again, way less likely if you use a latex barrier.
