In brief: No.
How kids react to the hpv vaccine depends in part how you promote it.
If a parent treats this like just another vaccine that they get, there will be no change in behaviour. The hpv vaccine has the ability to really help millions of people both men and women. It is encouraged that all kids get vaccinated.

In brief: HPV
A vaccine does not make a person more sexually active.
..This is a common argument against these shots and just makes no sense.

In brief: What?
The hpv vaccine does not make kids hornier, and most sexually mature kids are not particularly concerned with stds.
It is hormones that drive them and all the vaccine does is save the lives of many kids down the road from developing malignancies related to the infection. It should be widely used.
