    there may be some truth to this.

    a vp that i used to work with died from throat cancer 2 years ago. he never smoked but he was gay and from the talks around the office he did like to suck.

    so now no kissing , no sucking, and no butt sex

    hmmmm sex just seems to be dangerous to your life no matter how you cut and dice it.

    OK you need a new hobby, or a cute bf like me, to keep you from posting sillyness like this. You'd have to do 100's of gays a day orally to get throat cancer.

    As interesting as your posts can be, I wish you'd also post your own thoughts about the topics you post. Sometimes it just seems like you post things without reading. But there's no way to confirm or deny that, given the lack of content in your posts.

    As for the post, as long as you don't make it a habit to blow off every guy that happens to have a dick, you're less likely to contract HPV, and then less likely to develop throat cancer.

    The title of the article is misleading intentionally. There's nothing magic about it. Oral sex doesn't cause throat cancer. Performing oral sex on someone who happens to be infected with HPV, though, may cause cancer. Or that's what researchers say.

    I agree. It's time to come out of your parents' basement and join the real world.

    Gardasil only protects against 4 genotypes... genotypes 6 and 11, the two most common low-risk (wart-causing) HPVs and genotypes 16 and 18, the two most common high-risk (dysplasia/cancer-causing) HPVs. there are over 150 genotypes, so if you're already infected with any high-risk genotype, Gardasil is a waste of money. that's why it's best used in teens who haven't become sexually active yet. even then, it's not full protection against warts or cancer.

    And since HPV infection is a 'field' effect that starts the day you're born, you don't have to suck dick to get HPV in your mouth.... it gets in there through kissing, fingers and a host of other ways. same goes for your ass. sex DOES increase your exposure to more genotypes though.

    There is no mention in this article of the difference between hetero and homo sexual contact. It is much more likely for a woman to be tested culturally positive for HPV than a man, so I would guess that most of the subjects in this study were men doing vaginas. That said, one should take precautions against STD's in any case if you are so inclined to worry yourself to death.

    The 'head in in the sand' cutesy approach will only work for so long. I treat HPV infection and its affects in gay men every day. You are already infected... as we all are. Hope you live a long healthy life... but achieving that goal will require a little more faith in the medical community. Good luck!

    Not too long ago we were discussing here a link between anal sex and cancer.

    So be it.

    Philosophically, it would be a great study if we could concentrate all studies so far about the cancer risks of mundane activities. We might find out that there is no escape from risk. Instead of making us more fearful, it could teach us to enjoy life and be less complacent about the present.

    The link between HPV and anal cancer still exists... it didn't go away.

    Agree wholeheartedly with the philosophy about life, but that philosophy shouldn't obviate the need to use common sense in protecting one's health.

    Great bod btw. Probably worth a few additional HPV genotypes!
