6 doctors agree
In brief: Fairly HIGH
Molluscum spread has been documented through the sharing of towels, sponges, wrestling, and from a surgeon to several of his patients.
So it does not have to be direct skin contact but that is the most common route. Of course a condom will not protect all areas of the skin--so be aware.
