Possible HPV Transmission?

Good Day Dr.,

I invited a commercial sex worker to do a strip tease at my hotel.

During the course of this strip tease, she briefly touched the top of her vagina (not the lips or opening), which was shaved. This was about 30 seconds. There were no visible signs of warts.

She then proceeded to touch me with the same hand on my testicles, the base of my penis (I had on a condom), and on my nipple. These touches were, let's say, 30 seconds each.

Is there a possibility of HPV transmission?

Welcome to the forum.

Hand-genital contact during heavy petting is the likely explanation for occasional cases of genital HPV being diagnosed in virgins.  However, even this is very uncommon, and the brief contact you describe undoubtedly carries no risk at all.  Don't worry about it.

I hope this helps.  Best wishes--  HHH, MD
