In brief: Round up the kids

The Gardasil vaccine is for both boys and girls, so it is up to each family to round up the kids and take them to the doctor for shots and annual check-ups.
The way to prevent infection (and future transmission) of the 2 "bad" strains of cancer-causing hpv, and the 2 strains that are the main cause of genital warts, is to vaccinate kids in middle school or high school (definitely before college).

2015 update: The original Gardasil protects against 4 HPV strains. A new Gardasil that adds protection against 5 more cancer-causing strains of HPV, to protect against a total of 9 HPV strains, will be available this year. This new version of the vaccine is called Gardasil 9.

In brief: Yes

Read the news. We are getting immunized too.
Most of us do it out of concern for the women that we love.

In brief: Vaccine

Yes, the hpv vaccine is now approved for use in boys and young men.
Vaccinate your sons too, not just your daughters!

In brief: No cure, but vaccine

There is no cure for HPV, but vaccines for some of the worst strains are available.
There is a push to start vaccinating boys (as they can also develop cancer from HPV), but there are many political and social issues preventing widespread adoption of this in most locations.
