Your high school sex ed teacher may have scared you with the shocking statistic that 1 in 5 people has herpes — but it turns out, the world is much more infected than that!
On Wednesday, the World Health Organization said that two-thirds of the world's population has the virus that causes cold sores!
According to a new report, 3.7 BILLION people under the age of 50 have the incurable herpes virus. This includes herpes simplex 1 virus (HSV-1) which is usually caught in childhood, and genital herpes (HSV-2) which is sexually transmitted.
But the new report shows that HSV-1 can also cause genital sores to develop — and oral sex is becoming the most prominent way it's transmitted!

In the interview, which was also with Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, the film star admitted that the three of them have herpes… which can be transmitted through kissing, and none of them will admit who was the one who started it all!
You know, since they all suck each others faces throughout the franchise!

Kris Humphries scored a HUGE victory in his legal battle against Kayla Goldberg, who says Kim Kardashian's ex-hubby gave her herpes!!
In case you forgot, the NBA forward already provided proof that he is 100% STD free, but Kayla wanted him tested AGAIN, specifically for herpes simplex type one, which causes cold sores to develop around the mouth.
However, Judge Gregory Keosian flat out

Back in 2012, Kris Humphries was sued by Kayla Goldberg, who claimed he gave her herpes when they had unprotected sex!
However, the basketballer's lawyers are saying there's no way he's the one responsible for her STD, and that she's gotten down and dirty with too many other guys to prove it was him!
According to legal documents, Kayla admitted in a recent deposition that she's
