Our expert says:
The human papillomavirus (HPV) can be transmitted though lesbian sexual activity. The virus is transmitted through sexual skin-to-skin contact with an infected person. No penile penetration is needed to contract the virus. Lesbians can contract the virus from an infected partner through:
genital to genital contact
touching the genitals of a partner and then your own
sharing sex toys without first disinfecting
