Oral HPV transmission clarification



•HPV is spread through skin-to-skin contact, not through an exchange of bodily fluid.

You CANNOT get HPV from:

Kissing on the mouth, hugging, or holding hands

Being unclean (bad hygiene)

Sharing food or utensils

*******
Genital HPV is spread mainly by direct skin-to-skin contact during vaginal, oral, or anal sex. It’s not spread through blood or body fluids.

I know what planet these scientists live on, perhaps on a planet where only uses throwing kisses on the planet I live on is kissing skin to skin contact and in most cases, even the tongue.
And if the body fluid can contain and move the HPV virus, how can then the virus ends up in the back of the tonsil, or for that matter on the woman cervix, where normally reaches no skin contact, and they have also found HPV in lungs in lung cancer
