Having multiple sex partners is a cancer risk?

News to me.

Good luck telling LGBT folks "no" on smoking. That'll go over like a lead balloon. Telling LGBT folks "no" is asking to be sued.

Hardly.

If you'll get sued for not baking them a cake, I can;t imagine what would happen if you said "don't smoke" to them.

She's an idiot.

Good hygiene + condom means no chlamydia transmission. No chlamydia transmission means no cancer risk.

Also, since when do males get cervical cancer from chlamydia?

ROFL.

Nothing like junk science to further an agenda.

The AS folks have been plumbing that forever. You just need enough sheeple to buy into it, I guess.

Most things MEDICAL today are marketing misinfomation used to get people upset and fearful, IF they don't use this or that drug/ product. Side effects too are NEVER the result of faulty/ fraudulent product. They are caused by the victim's gene's, their older father, obese mother, its a coincidence, an undiagnosed preexisting disorder, etc. Its lawyer talk.

Thanks for backing me up.

The AS junk science is a textbook example of this-misinformation used to get people upset and fearful.

I knew we'd find a common ground eventually.

When you're a [email protected] taking it up your ass, yes. Brutal pounding of the aszhole most likely leads to anal cancer.

And HOW does that occur? Please delineate the mutagenic processes, and the biochemical mechanisms.

HPV is very widespread and causes cancer. And you can get HPV just from oral sex. HPV is a leading cause of oral cancers.

Yep.

Yet another reason for circumcision.

All those filthy heteros giving their wives and girlfriends entirely preventable cancer and sterility.

I'm circumcised and prefer circumcised, I think that uncircumcised is really icky & ugly.

And since I came out in the 70's, before the HIV pandemic was recognized (June, 1981 CDC report), we never used condoms then so I'm lucky I never ever contracted vd, hiv, hpv, nor anything else.

Not much STD risk when you have 12 year olds for partners.

"HPV" = "Human Papilloma Virus"

is as easily transmittable

just by rubbing skin-to-skin

and is in high-sex-partner ratios very likely CARCINOGENIC.

THAT'S NOT "junk " medicine Nor marketing,

THAT'S SCIENTIFIC MEDICAL FACT !

CANCER is a KILLER!

Yes. HPV is also preventable by a simple vaccination. Regardless, it too doesn't care about the orientation of those it infects.

Don't worry masterbating doesn't cause cancer.
