Yes.: You can contract hpv in our mouth or genitals from contact with the warts or surrounding tissue. Sperm or seminal fluid does not necessarily play a role. You can still transmit the virus to your genitals if you or your boyfriend touched there as well.

Risky behavior: If your boyfriend has genital warts then he also has hpv. Putting your mouth on his genitals would put you at high risk of acquiring oral hpv. Hpv is transmitted by virus on the skin not via fluid like sperm.

HPV: Yes, you could still get hpv in your mouth, on your tongue, on your lips and in your throat. The role of sperm carrying hpv is not fully known.
