HPV

Hi Doc,
I am a gay man and want to know the truth about HPV. Now know that mens and woman can get anal cancer due to HPV. Woman now have the HPV innoculation and a friend of mine who had servical cancer, told me that her Dr said that her husband shouldn''t worry, as ''the cells in the vagina/servics is different from those in the anus and penis''. What carp??
Can men also go for the HPV innoculation? Secondly, I was told that one can get HPV even with a condom, as the virus resides in the whole groin area, and you can get it from simply touching bodies?

Please help us out here. I do not sleep around and only have sex when I am in a relationship, and then it is always with a condom anyway, but Im really worried if one can get HPV so easily?

Many thanks,
S
