my mom basically refuses to give me any approval of having sex before i get the gardasil shot, because she says HPV can be transmitted thru oral sex. i know that's true, but what if latex barriers are used at all times and you're EXTREMELY careful to not touch any other uncovered area? how can the infection possibly get thru a condom and into your mouth if you use these methods??

Well, your mom is a lot more practical than a lot of folks. And by asserting that you should be totally abstinent till you're done getting vaccine, she's maximizing your chances of getting full effectiveness out of it. Can't you just wait out the 6 months so you won't have to worry as much about HPV?

anyway, what I'm getting at is that condoms aren't perfect, and even if you try to be careful, that's really difficult if you're going at it vigorously.

Based on your questions so far, if you need an alternative to total abstinence while you are getting Gardasil, stick to dry humping while wearing long pants or maybe some mutual masturbation.
