Are you living with herpes and dated someone off of a herpes dating site or found love from one? Are you between the ages of 18-27? If so, MTV wants to hear from you!

They are looking for individuals or couples right now. From our conversation, this will be a serious series. Herpes is one of the last remaining medical conditions where is it still acceptable to be the butt of many jokes and MTV hopes to change this. This holds especially true for the younger audience where new cases of herpes is skyrocketing. This will be a great opportunity to not only tell your story but help educate others on what living with herpes and dating online is like from a personal perspective.
