Who is more susceptible to catching HPV & Genital Warts, a man or a woman?

by Rachel on April 19, 2011

Is it harder for a woman to catch HPV as opposed to a man? A friend of mine told me that if a woman has HPV (genital warts) it’s more than likely she has had numerous sex partners. I don’t see how that is possible, but figured I would ask anyway.
Thanks

no difference what so ever…

and not necessarily she could have had one sex partner that had them and bingo…only takes once…

Woman in heterosexual relationships have a higher susceptibility of acquiring hpv than men in heterosexual relationships; do to the method of transmission.
