There is a lot of stigma attached to HSV-2, the common cause of genital herpes, especially when you take into account that:

Herpes Virus 1= Coldsores
Herpes Virus 3= Chickenpox/Shingles
Herpes Virus 4= Infectious mononucleosis/mono/glandular fever
Herpes Virus 5= Infectious mononucleosis-like syndrome
Herpes Virus 6= Roseola
Herpes Virus 7= Roseola
Herpes Virus 8= Kaposi's sarcoma

Most of us have come into contact with several of the viruses. These viruses are all latent, meaning once infected, you are infected for life. They like hang-out in nerve and white blood cells, causing recurring infections.
