    That's a risk I'm willing to take.

    I wasn't being facetious as I'm sure you know, Men. That and kissing. Even in the darkest days of AIDS those stayed on the menu. Take them off and sex would become a big why-bother.

    know what the leading cause of all types of cancer is? Birth.

    Why would you perform oral sex on anybody without the proper protection? Use a flavored condom.

    actually Birth is a precurser to Cancer but it isn't actually a cause

    how terrible, it's like every time I get a blowjob now I'll feel like I'm killing the lady

    But swallowing semen reduces the risk of breast cancer, so it all evens out.

    Put like that (8.6 fold increase) sounds scary.

    But what are the throat cancer rates (per 100,000 or million), and what percentage of them can be attributed to HPV?

    And what is the prevalence of HPV in the general population and in the sexually active population?

    And is HPV, like herpes, a localised infection?

    Yes, most people do know. But that will not stop all the slurping, sucking, slobbering and swallowing.

    There are strains of the HPV that are specific to asses, cunts and throats. People are still going to have sex, no matter what the risks.

    But, let's also remember that cum is loaded with many healing properties too and even helps with depression - and that's the truth!

    I knew oral sex can transmit hpv and therefore lead to throat cancer and therefore I always use a condom. I started doing this while working as an escort and will now forever do so. I have since become a medical professional and have worked with people who have developed it. A huge proportion of mouth and throat cancers are due to HPV infection, just as are most cervical cancers. If people are prepared to risk losing their tongue (and having it replaced if you are lucky with part of your thigh, or forearm - yes it stays hairy), ability to speak through laryngectomy and want to breath through a hole in their neck (tracheostomy) then that's their look out. Bear in mind that radiotherapy and chemotherapy will make your teeth and hair fall out, will kill your taste buds so you can't taste you food and will destroy your salivary glands so that you may have to eat pureed food for the rest of your live. Of course there is always thae worst case scenario where it spreads like wildfire, gets into you lymph nodes and kills you. Yeah that's so worth it - not!
    HPV I think is systemic so it can stay in in your body for a while. I don't think there are specific ones to arses, cervixes or throats, but am not entirely sure - there are differing severities of the virus, obviously with the higher risk ones being worse. The virus gets into the cells of mucous membranes, changes the DNA in the nucleus, therefore causing abnormal cell growth and cancer.
    There is now a vaccine given to young girls to prevent HPV, and therefore cervical cancer - I assume it also has protection against the effect it has on the throat. But as it isn't routinely given to men yet I guess the best protection is condoms.

    I love condoms - the best thing ever invented!

    My aunt had mouth and throat cancer and suffered some of the problems described by strutter2, and eventually ended up needing a feeding tube. Although she beat the cancer and survived it by several years, her death was ultimately the result of the cumulative, long-term effects of her treatment.

    Nevertheless, I agree with Nick8 that oral sex with a condom is pointless. Not only is is not pleasurable, it's actually fairly unpleasant. Given the choice of oral sex with a condom or no oral sex at all, I'll choose no oral sex at all.

    You have to put the risk into context. According to the article cited by the OP, "people should be reassured that oropharyngeal cancer is relatively uncommon, and the overwhelming majority of people with an oral HPV infection probably will not get throat cancer."

    There are lots of things you can do to reduce your risk of injury or infection (e.g., never leaving the house and avoiding human contact as much as possible), but a life like that would not be a life worth living.

    Face: WikiAnswers - Does swallowing semen prevent breast cancer

    Can you work on your aim? You keep bolding the [/quote] tags, which breaks the quote and makes the whole thing hard to read.

    My granddad had cancer years ago, and a nurse would blow him in the hospital as part of his therapy. Said it helped keep the patients stay positive. The treatment wasn't covered by insurance though, which I found strange. It wasn't a big deal, cuz it only cost like 20 bucks each time, but still.

    Hmmm, I'm beginning to think she may not have been a nurse.
