Oral sex linked to cancer - Swedish study

Oral sex linked to cancer - Swedish study

Avoid oral sex. That's the advice from dentist Kerstin Rosenquist after a new Swedish study confirmed that the Papilloma Virus increases the risk of oral cancer. The virus has previously been linked with cancer of the uterus. The risk of getting of the mouth after oral sex is small. But for those whose mouths are infected by a special form of the virus, known as a high risk Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), there is an increased risk. Kerstin Rosenquist compared 132 cancer patients in the south of Sweden with a control group of 320 healthy individuals. In the cancer group, 36% carried the high risk HPV, compared to just 1% in the control group. As well as avoiding oral sex, Kerstin Rosenquist advised people to visit the dentist regularly, since the first symptoms can be hard to spot. Early diagnosis is important if the cancer is to be prevented from spreading to nearby lymph glands.

Female rapist sentenced

The 24-year-old woman found guilty on Thursday of forcing sex on a sleeping man has been sentenced to eight months in prison by a Bergen court. The woman was sentenced according to rape laws, for having obtained sexual access to a sleeping man. This was the appeals trial, after she had been sentenced to nine months for the same offense. The assault took place at a post-party gathering in a Bergen apartment on Sunday, Jan. 4, 2004. The woman admitted to taking the man's erect penis in her mouth but claimed that he was awake and approved. The man awoke and became extremely upset and has had psychological difficulties as a result of the incident. The appeals jury again found in favor of the man's version, the woman having suffered a severe loss of credibility by changing her story just before the first trial began.

You know, I think I'm going to pass on the Swedish dentist's advice.

Jeez, you gotta be willing to take some risks to get anything out of life.

You scandinavians are so ridiculous. Both news are for laughing at you.

1.-The countries more "liberals" in sex affairs are now becoming more puritans, has anything to do with your future masters, muslims, that don´t approve such practices?

2.-What about the woman? Is she so ugly to humiliate her?
That only could happen in Scandinavia or in the Vatican.
It is incredible to reject a woman this way, even going to trial, humiliating her, or trying to do so.

Oh my Lord, what will be your next surprise?
For instance: Scandinavian and Moslem Scientists, ja, ja, ja, have discovered that poligamy and beating women improve men health.
Come on little vikings you have become so comical.

Anybody have a picture of her? I mean, if I woke up and some 20-something chick was--well, you know--I wouldn't go running to the cops, nor do I think I would have lasting negative mental problems, unless she was REALLY ugly. REALLY REALLY ugly.UNSPEAKABLY UGLY. Of course, I'm 50, and that sort of thing doesn't happen to me anymore.

Thanks Fjordman, for the PSA--Public Service Announcement--we are grateful!

Of course, the new HPV vaccine would make this all moot.

I second about the vaccine. HPV is just one scary thing - would be much easier to eradicate if men were tested for the high-risk strains of it. Otherwise, *hehe*, you should abstain from kissing, too, since nobody knows if person is already carrying virus in the mouth! Now how paranoid is this.
