condom reliability

Everyhting I've read about HPV says condoms are not reliable protection but I don't quite understand why. Can the HPV virus actually be passed through the lining of a condom?

I need to know because if it can my gf will refuse to have sex with me as she cant guarantee her safety after I contracted genital warts from having a sexual encounter with someone else.

Re: condom reliability

ok so this is what i think how you get infected, though i am not a doctor but doctors say HPV is infected through skin to skin contact, that means, those sexual organs that are not covered by condoms, you see, we dont have condoms for the scrotum area (our "balls"), so I guess thats where you get infected. Just a theory. Oral sex can transmit the virus too, most people don't like oral sex with condoms so thats a sure fire of getting HPV. Thats how i got mine.
