Hsv2 declaration for users like the hiv declaration feature
Much like the option already given to users for HIV status declarations the feature proposed would be a close to being mirrored and easy code for web engineering and design team to reproduce exactly as you have already done for covid-19 descriptors recently given to users as an additional description feature.
NEW DESCRIPTION FEATURE that would greatly benefit user profiles would be for Genital/sacral/oral herpes simplex viral infections these conditions are also known as a persons HSV-1 and HSV-2 status.
The CDC statistics provided in 2022 reports that “roughly 18.6 million people living with HSV-2 reside in the United States.”
With an additional reporting that
“Around 1 of every 9 people in the United States between the ages of 14 and 49 has HSV-2”
Having the opportunity for users to declare their status would help to destigmatize embarrassment around communication with partners and benefit the community health as a whole to start the national conversation and encouragement of frequent testing preventative measures for discordant partners to take to greatly mitigate transmission risk. Suppression antivirals and prophylactic medication and cleanliness habits to shower immediately before planned close sexual contact and another shower as soon as possible after close sexual contact. The use of barriers for partners to use could even be used to secure sponsor ship to promote clothing to cover most skin and to provide minimal access openings to allow penetration and exposure of sex organs. Think wrestling suits or body suits with a hole in the back for your asshole and a hole in the front for a cock and balls to be on display. This reduction of skin to skin contact would reduce risk of exposure to possible herpes shedding in pubic, taint, ass, lower back areas with a barrier. And dang don’t dudes look good in skin tight role play gear, added bonus that would allow sexual adult clothing gear companies to advert on your platform. EVEN WITH A CONDOM HSV2 COULD STILL BE TRANSMITTED TO A PARTNER so suit up for some fun play the safe way and get a wrestling uniform modified for easy access to the good parts needed for play.
Thanks for the consideration
