This is all about 'Making Disclosure Sexy.' Why? Because more than 1 in 6 people ages 14 - 49 years are living with genital herpes in the US. Despite the fact that Herpes is a common STD, a stigma remains for people living with HSV2. And, in 2018 it can be confronting to have an open conversation with sexual partners about STI's and testing. Ignite Intimacy is hosting a convo between myself & 2 other professionals in the STI & Sex Ed space. We'll discuss destigmatizing Herpes & other STI's, dispelling myths about herpes & how to make STI testing & disclosure sexy. We'll focus on how to take care of yourself after a positive test result, when & how to disclose your status & how to have a thriving sex life when you're living with an STD.
