All kinds of sickness will ruin sex for us oh!

HPV (click on the abbreviation to see more about the virus) changes in the cells it infects,  can lead to cancer if those cells are in moist membranes such as the vagina, cervix, anus or mouth.

Half a million people a year are diagnosed worldwide with oral and throat cancer – 7,000 in the UK – with twice as many men as women. That’s because oral sex on a woman is more risky than it is on a man.

Each year 150,000 people die of it – 2,000 in the UK.

Film star Michael Douglas was diagnosed with tongue cancer in 2013 and he famously seemed to suggest it was brought on by HPV infection contracted through cunnilingus – A comment that later bit him in the ass as his wife was apparently not smiling after that interview.HPV now accounts for more head and neck cancers than tobacco or alcohol. Occasionally, however, the virus takes hold and cancer is the result. The most dangerous strains of HPV are 16 and 18, which cause up to 95% of cervical cancers and are now being linked to oral cancer.

The mouth is structurally very similar to the vagina and cervix, lined by cells that are the target of HPV 16 and 18.

Men, even though women are bent on this cunnilingus thing – please HPV is not written on the forehead like many STD’s & STI’s please be very cautious –  stop sucking tinzzzzzzz! 😳
