A Wisconsin woman is suing her lover for $350,000 because she claims he gave her genital herpes.  The 33-year-old unnamed woman alleges that after the couple spent the day together, they had sex, and the man knowingly infected her with the disease.

The woman wants to be awarded money from the man’s homeowner and auto insurance policies and is suing him for “personal injury, intentional infection, emotional distress and assault and battery.”

Although not the first of its kind, the woman’s case will be difficult to prove. A person can be infected with herpes for years without showing symptoms of the disease. Moreover, the man denies giving her herpes and blames it on the woman’s other sexual partners. However, the woman claims that the man and…wait for it…her husband of eight years were her only sexual partners.

In the lawsuit, the woman—who is still married—claims the man told her husband about the affair and his herpes infection.

The lawsuit states:

During a February 2011 telephone conversation, the man told the woman’s husband that he does not take medications to treat his herpes, according to the lawsuit. Medications could potentially have lowered the risk of transmitting the disease.

To prove emotional distress, the woman claims she has suffered from panic attacks while driving with her husband and children since finding out she has herpes. She also claims her husband no longer wants to have sex with her.

Hmmm maybe it’s just karma?

What do you think? Would you sue someone who gave you an STD?

    “She also claims her husband no longer wants to have sex with her.”. Who the hell would with her smoking ass. They need to put a Scarlet Letter on her, one big H, with a tattoo saying “WARNING!!! Dipping your penis into this walking cess pool may cause disintegration of member. Play at your own risk”.

    I hope to heaven that y’all women know that you can get Herpes (the gift that keeps on giving) WITH a condom.

    I’m all about exploring your sexuality and all that stuff, but have the dude get tested first. What? That’s doing too much?

    Funny how we wanna get a Certified used car, but drive home with an unchecked penis.

    Testing is sexy! Check yourselves regularly and work it into a conversation with your romantic prospects. You only have one life, ladies.


    It amazes me how many adults on this comments section don’t realize how certain STDs are transmitted…no wonder why stats are so high in our community. FYI people—you CAN get certain STDs/STIs even when using a condom e.g. herpes, HPV,etc. Just because she has the disease doesn’t mean she was “raw dogging”. You only need “skin-to-skin” contact. Please people..read up on stuff to protect yourself, especially when handing down judgments. Not absolving her of her personal responsiblity or her cheating; however, don’t just assume she was having unprotective sex. Knowledge is POWER.

      meant to read: “just because she has the virus”

    She’s a moron for cheating on her husband and deserved what she got. I don’t feel sorry for her.

    Hell yeah I would sue. Her case is pretty shaky, but that doesnt mean the lover should be off the hook. If he KNEW that he had and STD, especially something incurable like herpes, he should have informed her. Yes she should have taken the precaution of getting tested first. What if this story wasnt about a seemingly harmless virus?. What if we were talking about a woman who contracted HIV/AIDS?. Dont you think if the partner knew he had AIDS he should have told her?
