I think we're missing an important point here, and one the article doesn't explain well. To me it seems as though one needs to have oral sex with someone who has HPV. It's not as though the process of oral sex causes cancer. Not as absurd an idea as it appears.

Just so you know.... chances are, if you've had sex with at least 2 partners... you carry the virus, it's a matter of showing symptoms or not. From a health counselor I know at my university... she told me if you have sex with 2 people, you're chances of carrying HPV are 95%.... the most common STD these days. 80% of the sexually active population has the virus... like I said, it's a matter of showing abnormal signg (aka:abnormal pap for the ladies... men can NOT be tested as of now, there is only one way of "testing" a male that is NOT very reliable)

unprotected sex, you mean, right??

I was a health educator in my undergrad and yes, chances of transmitting ANY virus with unprotected sex is very high. As KDBuff said, it is not the gender of the individuals that puts them at risk, one should have it in order to transmit it.

And I think there is a reliable boold testing which can tell you if you have the virus or not.

be safe!

even wearing a condom does NOT always protect yourself from HPV... it can be contacted skin to skin since some warts are not visible to the naked eye, nor do they show symptoms.
Currently, there is NO test for males... which is a big contributor to making HPV the most common STD. The test I was talking about earlier that does not work to many people's satisfaction, is placing a towel soaked in solution and placing it on the males "area" :) and seeing if any spots show up. but anyways, this is getting too detailed.... but just wanted to clarify that males cannot get tested and protection does NOT protect you from HPV as it does other STD's... scary but true!

Wow, I can't believe that you guys all wear condoms. I've probably been with at least 600 girls (striving to attain wilt's mythical number) and have never used a condom. I hope I?m ok :D

Ok, shouldn't joke about that...still scary though.

As funny as it may seem, there are some people in college like this. I have a twin brother who goes to a large, state party school where something like one out of every two students has an std, ouch!

What is so upsetting about it? If the girl isnt smart enough to refuse sex when the guy doesnt wear a condom. Well then who is to blame? And another thing, just because someone is applying to medical/dental school or got in, doesnt necessarily mean they are a more high caliber or respectable person. I often wonder where some of my gf's friends come from, lack of manners and consideration abound (they are all med students). So I dont believe just because they are in the medical field that they automatically have higher standards than the average person.

Very true; but one expects someone who is going to a healthcare field to know better.

Not necessarily. Learning that stuff is the whole point of going to professional school in the first place.

Apologies to anyone who is offended by this, but:

Under these circumstances, does ?deepthroating? further increase the risk of cancer?

Ha! :laugh:

Intuitively speaking, it probably wouldn't make any difference. The relevant factor is the transmission of HPV, which is an oncogenic virus. Anything that transmits the virus is probably going to distribute it pretty widely around the oral cavity...(especially if she knows what she's doing.)

I agree fully. Great post PreLud.

You're contradicting yourself. Either 1) People who are planning to attend professional school at some point should know better, in which case they're being held to a high standard simply because of their career aspirations, or 2) Everyone who attends high school should know better, in which case the standard should be uniform. Personally, I lean toward the latter, but you're arguing both.

Yo STD's aren't cool, Zurich you better be careful man. Now I haven't had as many women as you but I've been around and getting STD's is the last thing you wanna do.

To test for STD's they stick a tiny q tip up your urethra (your pee hole)...so even if you are clean but suspect you have something, it ain't a pleasant experience!!!!


:scared: :wow:

I haven't met a girl that turned me down for the fear of mouth cancer. Ladies you will have more of a chance getting mouth cancer from putting on lipstick than oral sex.
