In brief: Yes

The vaccine is now approved for young men.
As with women, it is best to be vaccinated before any sexual activity.

This vaccine also protects against anal and rectal cancers, and is showing some promise in protecting against certain esophageal and throat cancers that may be HPV related. It also will protect against genital warts.

It protects you and your partner from contracting HPV. Also, it protects against many other types of cancers than just cervical. It has shown efficacy against anal, rectal, and hypothetically certain esophageal and throat cancers. It also protects against genital warts.

And if this man is sexually active, he can spread the virus to others with whom he has sex. Prevention for himself and others.
