Let me explain: Studies have shown hpv transmission between hands and genitals of the same person and sexual partners is possible, partridge reports men's fingertips became positive for high risk hpv at more than half the rate (26% per 2 years) as their genitals (48%) winer reports 14% of fingertip samples from sexually active women were positive. So clean your hands before.
