I was speculating today w/o symtpomts HPV really does not exist for males.

First of all I have the symptoms, the wonderful warts. I constantly think about how only around 1% get the symptoms of this virus. I really have always tended to dwell on the negative because I am pestimistic. Anyways; I was speculating today that as a male having this virus w/o warts would really not effect anything. For 1. They will not know they have it. 2. There really is no complications from it besides a very rare chance of penile cancer. 3. Even if a girl they have been with told them that they have it they could still deny it because there is no way to test for it and they still feel the same. I know this is really kinda pointless to think about but it just really bothers me that 80% of the population has this virus but only 1% has to deal with it(as far as males go anyways) I mean I guess really that is a good thing but I would rather be with the other 99%. Everyday I examine my currently aldara treated warts and wonder..will this be my only breakout? How long will it take to fully heal? Can I ever have sex again w/o worrying about passin' it on? I know the females have it worse although; and I do sympathize for them.
A question I have if any can take a wack at it..Is the strain for the warts more rare or just producing symptoms for them even if you have the strain? For me, I know I went through a very bad depression this last winter; due to several life events that happend within a short time period. I also drank a LOT and was always stressed out. So I am sure that my body had no problems producing symptoms because my immune system was probably a bit down. Anyways I am gonna go to bed...I appreciate all replies.

Re: I was speculating today w/o symtpomts HPV really does not exist for males.

Hi, you have asked thought provoking questions...


Can I ever have sex again w/o worrying about passin' it on?


I too wonder that same very thing...that is my main concern about it...


Symptoms or not, the idea of being 'contageous' this way ( to the fraction of

the uninfected 20% of the adult population who happen to be female, and to

any adult females who are not infected with the same strain ),

just does not sit well with me...



I wonder how prevalent it is in the adult film industry...I wonder what

constitutes a 'clean bill of health' in that career field...there must be degrees


I have a feeling the more 'theatrical' the stunt penis, and the hotter

the 'starlet' ( she must be hotter than her burning condition ), the more

negotiable things are...




Being 'contageous' just goes against the whole idea of intimacy for me...

spontanaety in intimacy is important to me, and such a condition

seems to negate that.


I don't mind wearing condoms to protect myself, but if I have to wear them

to protect someone else ( which supposedly they are less effective for HPV,

and I'd say the stats prove it ) it really bothers me...


I am confident that symptoms can be effectively treated now, with current medicines... the symptoms don't bother me ( they are flat and only appear on a relatively small area, and have not spread )... I will be glad when they are able to cure the condition.

Good Luck To You

Yah I understand what you mean about the spontaneous thing.....I was with a girl who was on birthcontrol last summer and we would do it all the time in all kinds of places it was great fun...but she could have been the one that gave it to me I really am not sure. Anyways my receant though on the whole subject is denying myself of sex is just way to harsh..I am gonna wait till I am completely healed and clear and go tlak to a doctor about protecting others. When I went in the first time the lady told me that condoms bring down the risk of spreading a lot but not 100%...If I decide to get into a relationship I will have to tell the other person and I believe that my wonderful personality and the other things I have going will make up for it. I hope they get the vaccine out for it soon so I can have sex w/o worrying about it.

I think you will be fine. I tend to mope and brood about it, and I think it affects my countenance, or "vibes" to other people...I am going to have to work on my attitude...I think you have the right idea !
