Herpes isn't all bad. As long as a judge awards you with $900,000 for getting it.
A 49-year-old Oregon woman filed a lawsuit against a 69-year-old dentist who accidentally gave her herpes. We say "accidentally" because he didn't think she'd get it. However, he didn't bother to tell her about his unpleasant condition before they banged and didn't bother wearing a condom either. So really, he's just the worst health care professional ever.
The defendant contended that he is not at fault because his eHarmony date (watch out online daters) didn't demand he wear a condom and he didn't know his genital herpes were contagious because he wasn't in the middle of an outbreak.
The plaintiff tells a different tale though. She testified that she asked him to wear a condom, but he just didn't. After they made whoopee, they were lying in bed and he broke the dreadful news to her and she immediately kicked him out of her house.
Unfortunately for her (but fortunately for her bank account), he was already inside of her
house for far too long and she had a herpes outbreak just 11 days later.
Ultimately, the plaintiff prevailed in the first case of it's kind in the state and was awarded nearly a million buckaroos for her pain and suffering.
We totally agree with the ruling and hope that this will be a lesson to anyone who thinks they don't need to inform a sexual partner about a sexually transmitted disease or infection. However, don't wait around for that to happen and ALWAYS use a condom just in case!
But don't just ask for a condom, DEMAND one!
