Can cunnilingus or fellatio transmit HPV (human papilloma virus) infections?

Yes to both but rare. The hpv virus is ubiquitous. But most of us, most of the time, are able to fight off its affects in terms of warts or precancerous changes of the cervix.

Never the less, there are increasing reports of oral/throat hpv.
