Transmission II

Thanks, Ibizan, for your response.  But for further clarification (and peace of mind), I offer this scenario:  Say a friend contracts HPV orally (via oral-genital route).  Can she then transfer the virus onto an inanimate object, such as a glass or chapstick, and thus infect others through these now contaminated objects, assuming they can be contaminated as such?  I ask for further clarification after having read that transmission can occur from contaminated underwear or a swimsuit bottom.  Thanks again!
