Thanks for requesting me.

You can get warts on the genitals from any source of the wart virus.

For example, in rare occasions, warts on your hands could be transferred to the genitals.

Any skin to skin contact with a wart can transmit a wart virus.

They might or might not come from sexual contact.

there are many strains of the wart virus, the only way you could see if this was from sexual contact is to look at the strain of the wart from both partners if they both had it.
