A Las Vegas man is suing a woman he met on Tinder for giving him genital herpes.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the man named in court documents as John Doe met the woman, a movie producer from Beverly Hills, on Tinder on February 4.
She allegedly told him of many sexual partners she met online, but after learning Doe was especially concerned about STDs, she claimed to have always used protection.
Doe said he went to the woman's California home on February 12 and asked if she had a condom as she took off her clothes. She said she didn't have one but promised she was "a good Jewish mother" with no STDs, and then, they had unprotected sex.
They had unprotected sex again at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas on February 18.
Two days later, the woman called Doe to reveal she contracted genital herpes from her ex-husband over 20 years ago.
She suffered from a flare-up that morning and later told Doe she was under the impression the disease could not be sexually transmitted unless the intercourse took place during an outbreak.
Doe is now suing the woman for about half a dozen offenses including fraudulent misrepresentation, gross negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and battery.
The lawsuit demands at least $10,000 for the lost wages, medical expenses, lost earning capacity and emotional pain he allegedly experienced as a result of the woman's failure to inform him of the STD.
A study released by the World Health Organization in October found two-thirds of the global population has one of two forms of herpes.
Health officials in numerous states also reportedly noticed a link in STDs and the use of casual dating apps such as Tinder and Grindr.
