Is it possible to get low or high risk HPV in a massage parlor from the masseuses hands if she touches me after she touches skin from an HPV infected customer?

Technically it’s possible but incredibly unlikely. HPV is a very resilient virus and it’s pretty much everywhere – on door knobs, on cutlery, on light switches etc. However 99.9% of the time your immune system kills it before it can take hold and cause warts. Your chances of getting HPV in a massage parlor are really no greater than getting it anywhere else – besides the majority of people who work at such places are trained pretty well in hygiene issues, unless it’s a really shady place.
