In brief: No

Vaginal cancer is usually caused by certain strains of the hpv virus.
While a woman's risk of vaginal is increased by multiple sexual partners and having a history of abnormal pap smears, it is still very rare. Cancer cells are malignant, but are not capable of grafting from one individual to another via sex.
