In brief: Not as common

Although HPV can be common among young women the majority of the infections occur in the genital area.
With unprotected sex the risk of all STI's increases which also includes HPV. The vaccine protects against four serotypes of HPV that have the highest risk of disease and cancer but there are hundreds of different serotypes, which can cause disease.

In brief: Not very common

While there are more than a hundred strains of the HPV virus causing infections/lesions in mouth and genital areas, a few strains like HP 16 and 18 are responsible for the majority of infections and cancer types.
The vaccines (Gardisil and Cervirix) apparently protect against these common stereotypes of HPV. If you have questions about oral lesions pl consult an ID specialist thru your primary.
