Can I get HPV by rubbing a girl over her under ware with my hand?

by Rachel on January 19, 2011

So this girl and I went skinny dipping, however, she kept her under ware on. We go back up to sit by the fire and she invites me to cuddle inside her towel. I started rubbing her over her underware for about 10 or 15 seconds, never penatrating, when she tell’s me to stop. When I asked why she told me she has HPV, but not the kind that causes warts, the one that leads to cervical cancer. So my question is should I be worried about my hand or anything else?

HPV is a virus.
It never goes away and some strains do lead to cervical cancer, albeit the potential for that is small.
HPV can cause warts.
I think you will be fine as you didn’t have oral or normal sex with her.
If you are concerned, though, go to your doc and get tested.
HPV is the most common STD out there.
You’d be surprised how many people have it.

HPV is passed on through genital contact –most often during vaginal and anal sex. Since HPV usually causes no symptoms, most men and women can get HPV – and pass it on – without realizing it. People can have HPV even if years have passed since they had sex.

Because HPV is so common and usually invisible, the only sure way to prevent it is not to have sex. Even people with only one lifetime sex partner can get HPV, if their partner was infected with HPV. Condoms (used all the time and the right way) may lower your chances of passing HPV to a partner or developing HPV-related diseases. But HPV can infect areas that are not covered by a condom—so condoms may not fully protect against HPV.

why would you do that?

No. HPV is sexually transmitted and is the virus that has been linked to cervical cancer. You can’t catch it by rubbing someone thru their underwear.

It’s unlikely. HPV is transmitted through skin to skin contact. If you had clothing in between you, the chances are highly unlikely.

I wouldn’t worry about it. If you are that promiscuous you probably already have an HPV in your system.
