This bit made me laugh!


"We have known for some time that there is a small but significant group of people with oral cancer whose disease cannot be blamed on smoking and drinking because they are too young.

"In this group there must be another factor, and HPV and oral sex seems to be one likely explanation.


Too young for drink and smoking (legally 18 here, but often start younger) so it must be oral sex!

Maybe this should be tagged onto the 'oral sex at school' thread?

... is the fact that oral sex is know to be a major reason for female infertility in western countries. While that may sound crazy first it does make sense from a scientific standpoint.

<science talk> We all know that for certain diseases whose general way of entry is the mucosa (meaning the tissue in your mouth, lungs, nostrils, digestive tract etc.) we use oral vaccination instead of injections. The reason for that is that oral vaccination causes the production of the only antibody type that is secreted through the mucosa which is IgA. If you want to prevent certain bacteria or viruses from even entering your system this is the antibody you want. Well, it turns out that oral sex in fact works like oral vaccination. Sperm fluid is a more potent Adjuvans than complete Freund'sches Adjuvans (Adjuvans being a fluid that intensifies the reaction of your immunesystem against a certain target mixed with the Adjuvans). How did scientists come to that conclusion? When researching the cause for female infertility in many women in western countries they found high levels of IgA against parts of male sperm in the uteral and vaginal fluid. When searching for a possible explanation for that finding oral sex was the only common factor that was found and when using sperm-bank sperm-samples mice that were orally treated with it developed drastic IgA immune responses against sperm </science talk>

*grins at the thought of this study being presented at a science convention*

The article states though that it only affects people who already have STD's. A point I'd highlight if my girlfriend ever mentioned the article. :cool:

Yes, I can hear it now.

New study reveals that drinking water, yes H2O, is now linked to cancer.



The latest scientific scare tatic is
_______ cause cancer.

A major study shows that greater than 90% of oral cancer is caused by drinking and smoking. Those found to have HPV Virus (human papilloma virus) acknowledged to having oral sex. It is the same virus that causes cervical cancer. They are working a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer they think that it might be effective on oral cancer also.

but hey, think of it this way... these scientists and medical people are always making big sweeping statements like these, only for the following week another group of them announce that infact, oral sex could well be a cure for cancer.... :eek: :D :p :p

What next?? You Pick your nose too much your feet may fall off?

Personally, (and with this subject matter how can it be anything else?) I think the lab-coat technicians are jealous because they all still live at home with their Mums, they still wet the bed and are looking to spoil it for the rest of us.


Naturally I don't have a great deal of proof to back that up and am merely looking for attention and recognition from my peers, but that didn't stop them from publishing their findings in the first place;)

That could explain why my younger brother used to eat his, to re-fill the chasm his nasel evacuations produced.

So there I was thinking he was a disgusting troglodyte, when in fact he was a self-replenishing genius!! :D

The article states though that it only affects people who already have STD's... otherwise im fairly sure oral sex prevents cancer.

At least thats what I will tell my girl.

That would make a great T-Shirt..

surgeon generals warning:

Oral sex when performed regularly has been shown to prevent cancer and otherwise promote healthy cellular function. Additional sexual behavior is also believed to be mutually beneficial, however further studies are needed before making a final decision.

Raphael Viscidi, a virologist who worked on the research, believes the findings substantiate the link between HPV and oral cancer. It is sexually transmitted.

"This is a major study in terms of size," he said. "I think this will convince people."

High consumptions of alcohol and cigarettes are estimated to cause 75-90 per cent of all cases of oral cancer. The combination of tobacco smoke and alcohol are thought to produce high levels of cancer causing agents.

Scientists are currently working on vaccines to prevent cervical cancer, which is more common, but they might also be effective against oral cancer.

"It is thought the vaccines would prevent oral infections as well," the magazine added.

How is oral sex any less valid than intercourse?

Or does it have to involve a penis to be considered "real" sex?

No vinow. I consider oral sex to be real sex. It can be oral, anal, or vaginal. All are still sex. We have Bill Clinton to thank for the confusion. The it all depends on the definition is "is" person.

umm i'm afraid to touch this for fear of being attacked ...

but the reason i said that is because i have female friends that say, "if a guy wants a blow job, why not just have regular sex, so that i get something out of the deal too"

i apologize for the misuse of words such as "real" or "regular"
