the question cut off at the end - that should say "or on the penile shaft"
Even if you use condoms, they don't protect all skin from coming into contact with all your partner's skin, no matter what your sex is, and the sex of your partner.
If you have a penis, and your partners have vaginas, for example, even with a condom, there is still a possibility that some of your mucous membranes can come into contact with hers. Condoms shift, slip, come off. They don't offer 100% protection against HPV, though they do offer significant protection.
Oral sex can transmit HPV, but it's far less likely.
Have you been vaccinated for HPV?
It's considered an inevitability that most of us will get HPV at least once in our lifetimes. The vaccine can help with that, if you are eligible (under 45 in the US - other countries have different standards). Talk to your doctor about it.
If I may whey in my conservative non-modern judgmental opinion, if your girlfriend requested it, then the passion is gone the feelings are gone, I would end it and move on, time is precious to be wasted like that.If you suggested it make the grown man decision to end it and let her loose and not waste her time as she deserves to find herself a worthy partner.
Hi auntiejessy, hope you are well :).
Back on subject, speaking from personal experience, no amount of sex or no man or woman is worth to put yourself through an std experience, it is not pleasant, and is detrimental to both physical and psychological health.
