Yes, there are. It has been proven that people who report a high number of sexual partners may be hosting one or more types of HPV. Also, people with compromised immune systems (e.g. AIDS patients) have persistent infections from HPV more frequently. Therefore, as regards the risk of infection, the choice of sexual partner plays an important role.
