HPV vaccine for adult male virgin?

I'm a 33 year old guy who's still a virgin, having had no sexual experiences with women. Should I invest in (i.e. pay out of pocket for) the HPV vaccine series? It's recommended by current guidelines for guys up to age 26. No study looked at it in guys older than this, with the assumption that they've been sexually active by this age and exposed to it already. I can't imagine it's unsafe for me to get at 33, but is it reasonable for me to do so? Thanks for any suggestions or thoughts.
