its actually a good thing to have the oral herp bc it makes immune to getting the v-1 version and genital herp via getting head from a girl with the oral herp and slightly reduces your risk of getting the genital v-2 version from sex
source: dick was crazy irriated so went to the doctor and was incorrectly diagnosed with genital herpes following a blood test and was living with that for a few days before a nurse called to tell me that they did the wrong test (the original test didn't differentiate between the 2 types). restested and a couple days later came back clean.
very stressful week, went from 'I think I have herpes', to 'I have herpes', to 'I probably have herpes', to 'I don't have herpes. it had a weird affect on me too like I always feel bad for the people with herpes when theres a herpes joke bc that was legit one of the worst feelings ever.
also more than a few people reading this have genital herpes whether they realize it or not, I think its 1-5. pretty crazy to think that 20% of people you know have it. and condoms won't save you either which sucks
