In brief: No

The hpv virus that can go on to lead cervical cancer can be passed by sex as well as any other type of skin to skin contact.
There are still many dr's that think it is an std but data shows different. Most std's have an incidence of 2%, the incidence of hpv is 37-80% depending on which trial you look at.
