To lick or not to lick

Yet another excuse for men: oral sex is linked to cancer of the mouth. Damn!

Research by the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) in Lyon amongst 3300 persons has provided powerful evidence that oral sex can cause mouth cancer. Doctors have found a link between mouth cancer and a sexually transmitted virus named HPV16. The IARC research showed that people with mouth cancer ├ánd the HPV16 virus had performed oral sex three times more often that persons from the (healthy) control group… By the way: the chances of infection with HPV16-virus (hence mouth cancer) are equally shared by cunnilingus and fellatio and the biggest cause for mouth cancer remains smoking!
