HPV penis to penis

Hi all:

Last week a met a guy and he took our penis together with his hand for * 10 secondsm *
Do I have to worry about having HPV now? Is that exposure a high risk transmision way?
Should I test or visit a doc? I had no strange symptoms

Thanks all

I don't think there's a way to tell how risky your exposure was. Is there risk for transmission? Yes. HPV is like herpes in that it takes heat and friction to transmit the virus. Could there have been enough heat and friction generated in the ten seconds you mentioned? Maybe. The only way to tell if you have genital HPV is to wait and see. If you develop any bumps, then definitely seek professional help from your doctor. I believe HPV takes at least 2-3 months for symptoms to show. There are no tests to determine whether you have HPV, for men specifically. And if you do get genital HPV, guess what? It's not a big deal at all. Most sexually active adults will contract some form of genital HPV. Just get them removed, and eat healthier (fruits, veggies), don't drink, don't smoke, and don't have sex for a while. You're putting too much thought into this. It's fine! I promise. Just be more careful next time.

Think about it like this, almost everyone in the world has HPV, genital or non genital. Does everyone in the world have cancer? Nope. You can get struck by lightning tomorrow, but is it going to happen? Do you worry about that everyday? Even if you do have high risk HPV that doesn't mean you will get cancer. So, take it from me. Your worries are unsubstantiated. Just keep taking care of yourself (exercise, eating right, vitamins) and get yearly medical check ups. Peace!
