26 months ago
What’s the probability of contracting HSV from one kiss (kind of wet) on the forehead from stripper?

The kiss on a forehead is not a risk for herpes.  The skin of the forehead is too thick for virus to penetrate IF the kisser was infected with HSV, which we don't know either.  I do think that you can take this worry off your list now.  Not a risk
