I love this sentiment!!

The (or rather - another) problem with HPV is that there is no test for men on the market. So while you can pretty much assume most people have been exposed, there's no way of knowing if they are carrying it unless they've had problems caused by it (abnormal pap or warts in women, cancer or warts in men). They CAN test men, but it hasn't proven to be reliable enough to be approved by the FDA (therefore becoming readily available) since it involved swabbing the area and there is no way of knowing where exactly the virus will end up hiding out. All of this is US based, I have no knowledge of what is available or common practice in other countries.
