Yes you can: Herpes doesn't prevent you from having babies. It's an infection you will probably be dealing with periodically for the rest of your life but it doesn't affect fertility.

Herpes: I do not believe so. The virus would need a open sore, crack or cut to enter the body. Could a herpes virus live on food and then brush over a open sore on someone else say for instance sharing a bite on a utensil? Yes , i believe it could be transferred.

Women are more cautious and more apt to stop something before it becomes habitual (other than shoes, of course).
