Can HPV be transmitted without any sexual activity?

by Rachel on August 11, 2011

What if I touched something that someone touched after he or she touched their genitals, and masturbated after that? But touching the object long after the infected person touched it…I have NEVER had sex, or anything past kissing — which was only a one time thing. Can I get it even though I’ve never had or will have sex till I’m older, but I masturbate?
and please don’t show me the links to the home remedies crap.

HPV is only spread through direct skin-to-skin contact of the infected area. You can only spread it if your genitals directly touch.

It is possible to get it through oral sex though: you could get it in your mouth if your mouth touches someone’s genitals. You can’t spread it by kissing.

Condoms do lower the risk, but they don’t eliminate the risk completely. You can still get HPV while using a condom because condoms don’t cover the whole genital region.
