Herpes on the mouth areas can be transferred to others by kissing, sexual contact with the mouth (the virus can be passed from mouth to genital contact, and genital to mouth, as well as mouth to mouth) and drinking out of a glass or bottle after a person with active lesions. I suppose if lesions are near the urethra, urine could transfer the virus as well. If the lesions are not active, casual contact doesnt transfer the virus. You must be most careful when you have active lesions.
