What are the odds I'll get herpes? Apr. 5th, 2013 @ 06:22 PM Reply

So my friend decided to be a prankster today and found a tube of lipstick on the ground.
I was nearby talking to a friend about a Google thing. So he walked over and put the lip stick right on my lips.
At first, I din't think much of it, it's just lip stick. Then I realized that it came from the ground. I pretty much immediately washed it off. About an hour later I was able to get home and poured soap around my mouth.

So, I've heard people with herpes aren't supposed to share water bottles and such. How true is this? What are the odds that anything bad'll happen to me?
I think I'm mainly just posting this out of fear. I know the doctor population at Newgrounds is a low one. Just wanted to see if there was any reassuring general knowledge.

Nothing bad should happen as long as the lipstick didn't belong to someone who had herpes. If it did then your system will try and fight the infection and will hopefully win.

I understand your fear, and if you are really concerned, then see a docrtor or something soon.

Altho, my question is, if you are a dude, why did you let your friend put lipstick on you?

I was kinda just standing around, paying attention to someone else as my friend swipes lipstick across my lips.
I didn't exactly invite him to put it on.

Lipstick - It's not just for women anymore.

Highly unlikely. Herpes doesn't last very long outside the body, so you should be safe.

As long as you didn't expose mucous membranes, you're good.

But still, dude, how could you have not seen him coming?

I was looking the other way paying attention to someone else. He stuck his hand out in front of my dumb ole face and wiped it on my lips.

Thanks to everyone who replied so far. In health class, they kinda made it seem like oral herpes was an awful STD of death and embarassment instead of getting cold sores sometimes.
People questioning why I let my friend put lipstick on me is my punishment for not knowing.

You need to work on your spidey-senses.

A good chunk of the population has some sort of herpes, anyway. It happens, it flares up, meh.

You weren't making out with someone with a big ole cold sore on their lips, nor were you eating out/sucking dick with someone that was infected. So don't worry.

I know I'll be wearing lip condoms from now on.

But alas, it's probably too late.

The odds of any herpes virus being able to survive just lying around on a tube of lipstick is small- herpes isn't designed to live without a host.

Even if you DO somehow get herpes, herpes really isn't that big of a deal except in very rare circumstances. If medicated, you'll only have minor outbreaks, and the actual health effects are almost entirely negligible. Medically speaking, herpes isn't really all that bad. It's not like syphilis or HIV, not by a long shot. The worst part of herpes is, by far, the social stigma that comes with it, and it's undeserved.

Just hope nobody with AIDS used it to give a nice red colour to their asshole, and you should be fine. Not a lot of people have herpes, surprisingly.

That doesn't happen if you use your brains like a nice little smartypants. He deserved the herpes, in my book.
