Highly unlikely: Hpv is passed on through genital contact, most often during vaginal and anal sex. Hpv may also be passed on during oral sex and genital-to-genital contact. I think the extremely brief exposure, the nature of the exposure, and your prompt handwashing make it extremely unlikely that you became infected with hpv under those circumstances.
