All the posts or answers to posts try to minimize or maybe rationalize the lack of sex that comes with learning your diagnosis. (If you are a decent human being, unlike the **** who gave me hsv2). Sex, yes even the kind that is purely physical, is an important part of being a healthy adult. I feel like continually failing to recognize that or minimize that, is a disservice. It's been months since I've had sex but more to the point since I've been touched, caressed, desired and it is f*cking with my head! I'm intimacy starved. And it's real.

Yes, sex is and should still be a part of your life, there are so many ways to protect a partner, plus there are so many sex toys on the market for when you are going solo or to incorporate with a partner.
