Can you only get genital herpes from sex and oral sex?

Pretty much: Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease-so something sexual must be going on. These days, it's not like the 1950s, so sometimes HSV1 and HSV2 can get a little mixed up. (The first virus is the cold sore virus, and the second one is classically associated with genital herpes, but now the 2 can interchange a bit depending on the activity). Herpes is very infectious BTW-talk/take precautions

Genital herpes: No. This does not happen. One could theorize that if the pants were saturated with body fluids containing the virus and put on immediately while still wet and this came in contact with genital mucosa that this could happen, but it would probably be a first.

Still possible: It is possible to transmit herpes even when you aren't having an outbreak. Condoms help but don't completely protect you. The use of prophylactic antivirals such as valacyclovir has been shown to do a better job of both preventing outbreaks and transmission. Hope this helps.
