No, not necessarily

HPV is genital warts, so any skin to skin contact can spread it.
If you are breaking out and you touch the infected area you can get it on your hand

you can also get them in the mouth
yeah i know gross right?

no, in fact most strains of hpv are not sexually transmitted at all. There are over 200 strains, about 8% are sexualy transmitted.
p.s.
Genital warts is only one form of hpv and you can not spread it by touching. People need to get their facts straight
