From my understanding you contract HPV through genital areas touching (sex), a hand job should not hurt you. There is some info on HPV through the Center for Disease Control online-----check it out. Also new information on having oral sex w/ HPV partner is thought to be a contributing factor to mouth/throat cancer.
MarathonLady, these ladies have given you some good information. I've read some research (only one study, though) that says they are finding HPV under fingernails. I don't know how much it has been researched, but I tend to think HPV could be passed by hand/finger contact. Afterall, it is contracted by skin contact. I don't know for positive, though.
