Would it be safe for me (a woman), from hpv, if a guy wore a condom and stuck his penis out through the fly hole in his briefs (underwear, leaving his underwear on): 1. if we engaged in dry humping, if I have a thong on? What about without a thong (me naked)? 2. if I give him oral sex?
I was thinking that by him covering his midsection with his briefs (not boxers) and only exposing his covered penis. this would serve as a barrier to genital skin to skin contact. Am I correct, or is this still not safe from being exposed to hpv?

Hi NYLIgal and welcome to Scarleteen,
When we talk about dry humping, we're actually talking about sexual activity in which partners are, if not fully clothed, then wearing enough clothing that their genitals are fully covered. If peple want to engage in dry humping, and want to make extra sure that their bare genitals don't touch, they'd just want to be sure to both be wearing underwear that isn't going to shift in any way (so, probably not a thong).
I can't tell you whether what you've described will be enough coverage or not, since that's just going to depend on what people are doing, whether a condom slips off by accident, whether underwear shifts, and so on.
Again, though, if one is looking to prevent STI transmission with genital contact, one would want to make sure the genitals are completely covered by clothing and that that clothing isn't likely to shift during activity in a way that brings bare genitals into contact with each other.
Thanks for the feedback. Still wondering about the second part of my question...Would it be safe to give him oral if he is wearing a condom and my mouth only comes in contact with the covered penis? I am only asking about orally being exposed to hpv in the mouth.
