If you’re going to make out with someone or even go all the way and have sex with them, we think kissing should definitely be the number one thing to do because it leads the way.
The thing too is that you should be careful who you decide to kiss cuz even though you might use protection during sex, there are some other diseases and infections you can catch through kissing alone. Here are 3 of them.
You can get HSV-1 (oral herpes) or HSV-2 (genital herpes)through kissing.
For HSV-1, touching or kissing someone with an active cold sore can spread the viral infection to you. The virus can also be spread when no symptoms are present. HSV-1 can be spread by sharing saliva or items like utensils that have touched the mouth of those with the virus.
HSV-2 is more commonly spread through sexual contact — oral, genital, or anal — with an infected sore than through kissing. But mouth-to-mouth transmission is still possible.
Neither HSV-1 nor HSV-2 can be fully cured. You likely won’t experience many symptoms or complications unless you have a compromised immune system. (Source: healthline.com)
