    Now that a link has been established between anal sex and increased cancer risk what are your thoughts on the issue ? Will this news stop you from engaging in anal sex ?

    These studies don't prove that having anal sex increases risk to cancer, what they say is that there is a higher percentage of people with prostate cancer that have anal sex, but many theories say this is only because people who have anal sex realize they have a problem while many people who don't have anal sex many not discover they have a cancer. So some say this is a positive of being a gay man, because they pay more attention to the anal region of their bodies and therefore caught issues lots earlier.

    Wait--what type of cancer are we talking about here? I haven't heard of any connection between anal sex and prostate cancer. I have, on the other hand, heard that there is a link between anal sex and anal cancer (which is not the same thing as prostate cancer), because of HPV, which also causes cervical cancer in women.

    It is certainly a troubling thought. It's almost enough to make you consider going g0y.

    HAHA... EVERYTHING is a cancer risk thesedays... coffee, chocolate, work, your boss, people you dislike, anal sex, oh let's just say that us gays cause it too... To be fair, I think that because cancer is such a big issue thesedays, that scientists have one positive result, one thing that MAY cause cancer... and the media are all over it...

    By the way... I pass on my most sincere condolences to anyone who has been affected by any sort of cancer.

    I have seen smoke come out of a few when I'm done. Must be that kind-the kind that smokes. icon_lol.gif
