HPV is a sexually transmitted virus and lives under the male foreskin, Is the foreskin the helmet of the dick?

  • the fore skin is the skin that covers the glans which is the helmet. it is removed during circumsision.

  • The foreskin is like a turtleneck for the penis.  It has many protective and sexual functions, but you may have never seen one if you're from the US since it is removed by circumcision.  Google "foreskin" if you want to see a picture.

    Don't be fooled into believing that a man with a foreskin is more likely to give you HPV or another STD than a circumcised man. A recent study showed that men who'd been circumcised as babies were no less likely to contract STDs than their uncut counterparts ( It is irresponsible sexual behavior that puts you at risk for STDs, not your partners foreskin status.
