Yes, oral sex is sex, and it can boost cancer risk – The Chart - CNN.com Blogs

I thought oral sex was safe sex,Moderator cut: off topic Well I guess "safe sex" ain't so safe after all.

I read about this at the dentist last year. I wish people would wake up to the dangers/risks society is placing on our young people with the encouragement of anything goes. What is really disturbing is the amount of erroneous, damaging one sided information being given out at schools. An excellent book for parents is, "You're Teaching My Child What?" by Mariam Grossman, M.D. She gives verifiable information on the wide array of sexual misinformation that is dispersed to students in our schools and the medical as well as psychological damage that is the result. If you have children, I recommend it highly. A real eye opener. You can read the reviews at Amazon.

I wonder if the HPV vaccination would protect against this too.

To hasten throat cancer's decline, vaccination of boys and and men against oncogenic strains HPV-16 and HPV-18 should be considered, they suggested.

"The current vaccination strategy [suggested for girls and young women ages nine to 26] will only benefit men secondarily as the cohort of vaccinated women age and the incidence of chronic oncogenic HPV infection in the sexually active female population declines," the investigators wrote.

Did you see him play Liberace on HBO?

Why would they make a movie dissing Liberace now? The theatres would not show it so the producer went to HBO who did take it.

Does that cover throat cancer or just for cervical cancer? I haven't read that.

"Cancer experts believe HPV, a sexually transmitted virus which causes cervical and anal cancer, is a contributing factor in the rise of throat cancer."

Yes, except most people carry HPV these days. It's rampant and goes undetected in men. Unfortunately it seems to be yet another sexually transmitted disease affecting women. I wonder how many men will worry about that in a moment of lust, at the prospect of receiving oral sex. Sadly, the way people treat sex these days, I am concerned for all women, and especially for our daughters.
