How common are oral warts from genital hpv? Can you get them when you share a cup with  someone who has oral warts or am i just paranoid?

HPV and Oral Cancer: While the number of people with oral hpv infection has increased, the transmission is still considered to be sexual. Sharing a cup with someone with known oral hpv (which is not easily detected unless they have hpv + oral cancer) does not seem to be a risk factor. Smoking, having multiple past sexual partners (or a partner who does) and known genital hpv infection increases the risk for oral hpv. ...Read more

How can someone get genital herpes even if they have only ever had sex with people who are negative to hsv-2?

Could be HSV1: Hsv1 generally is considered oral herpes but can be transmitted during oral sex. It is more troublesome in the gential area because it is more sensitive there. Most people with oral herpes have an occasional embarrassing cold sore but not anything life-changing - that's not usually the case with gential herpes whether type 1 or 2.
