How can a man be a cervical HPV infection or a virus, he / she is not sexually active? Is it possible to get through the sex-toy?

I have done some reading on the subject that you asking about. On one web site I read that it actually can be contracted from touching something that someone with the virus has touched and then you touch yourself. For instance in a public bathroom, even itching then touching something, someone can come along behind touch the same thing and the virus can be transferred.
There was also one web site that said it was very rare for that to occur and chances were near none.

As far as toys go, sure if your not cleaning them properly or sharing with someone you can get infections and who knows.

It is possible to get STDs through places such as public restrooms but it is EXTREMELY rare. really the only way to get HPV is to have sex with someone who has it but be careful because guys carry the virus but usually dont have symptoms so they might not even know they have it and they can give it to you.

HPV is passed through skin contact. For the STD forms of HPV, this is usually by direct contact with the genitals of another person. Intercourse is not required.

HPV actually can live outside the body in ideal conditions for several hours. So it’s theoreically possible to get it from an object, but that’s not how most people get it. It’s best not to share sex toys for other reasons.

Never use used sex toys even if it is sterilized it is still disgusting. I would advise you to buy them if you want but don’t use used sex toys. It would be like sleeping with a street walker riddled with STDs.
