Miss Philicia:
What WILL we do?  I exceeded five partners about 25 years ago.

--- Quote ---Oral sex can cause throat cancer

People who have had more than five oral-sex partners in their lifetime are 250% more likely to have throat cancer than those who do not have oral sex, a new study suggests.

The researchers believe this is because oral sex may transmit human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus implicated in the majority of cervical cancers.

The new findings should encourage people to consistently use condoms during oral sex as this could protect against HPV, the team says. Other experts say that the results provide more reason for men to receive the new HPV vaccine.

Maura Gillison at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland, US, and colleagues collected blood and saliva samples from the throats of 100 patients diagnosed with cancers of the tonsils or back of the throat. The scientists also took samples from 200 healthy people for comparison.

By combining the blood and saliva samples with antibody molecules, Gillison's team could tell whether a person had ever had an HPV infection.

Between this, the kissing and the poppers, I really am doomed.

We just HAVE to be reminded again and again that the freewheeling sexual wildness of the '60s and '70s is long gone, don't we?

Miss Philicia:
Well, it really slapped me in the face last night when I watched "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" for the umpteenth time.

Five in a lifetime  :o Even the pope has had more blow jobs than that.

Well i'm already blind and deaf due to masturbation.
