For over two decades, Dr. Ruth has been the most recognizable and influential sex expert in the world. Now she tackles how to deal with one of the most common and misunderstood sexually transmitted diseases: herpes. It is estimated that herpes has infected some sixty million people in the United States. By interviewing dozens of people with herpes who have gone through the process of overcoming guilt, shame, and the common misconceptions associated with herpes, Dr. Ruth speaks frankly and openly about: What herpes is, and the different kinds of herpes you can catch; The ways herpes can be transmitted; How to cope with the disease once you have it; Having that all-important "talk" about dealing with herpes with either a prospective lover or a longtime partner, and Joining a herpes support group (or starting one of your own). Dr. Ruth's Guide to Talking about Herpes also offers unique strategies on how to talk to your kids about herpes, and how herpes affects you if you're gay or an older adult. Finally, Dr. Ruth addresses how to talk about other sexually transmitted diseases with your partner or lover.
