How Common is Throat Cancer from HPV?

Actor Michael Douglas made news over the weekend by revealing that his recent illness from throat cancer was the result of contracting HPV from cunnilingus. (Yesterday, he seemed to walk back that claim.) Whatever the facts in Douglas’ case, the story highlights a growing concern among medical professionals about the link between HPV and oral cancer. From Jezebel:

Every year in the U.S., about 5,600 men contract cancers of the oropharynx (back of throat), but many of these cancers are related to tobacco and alcohol use, not HPV, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A recent study on the prevalence of oral HPV infection in the U.S. found that HPV infection is the principal cause of a specific form of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma that is increasing in incidence among men in the United States, but acknowledged that little is still known about the epidemiology (the study of disease/its prevention) of oral HPV infection.

So, basically there’s a risk, but experts still don’t know how great that risk is. The article goes on to acknowledge that drinking and smoking are two of the primary causes of throat cancer, and may have been contributing factors in Douglas’ illness.

Still, for those of us concerned about the risks associated with HPV and oral sex, there’s a solution. The CDC recommends the vaccine Gardasil for men and women, beginning at 11 and up to age 26. In the meantime, Douglas’ comments have begun an important conversation on HPV and safer sex.

Ikea Porn

For some of us, browsing the Ikea catalog can be a deeply pleasurable experience, as we fantasize about all those sleek, modern furnishings transforming our cramped little homes. Now, fans of the Swedish furniture company can take their fetish one step further thanks to a brilliant new Tumblr comprised of GIFs highlighting Ikea products in amateur porn. Warning: it’s not at all safe for work.

Google Says No To Glass Porn

Well, that was fast. Just a few days after it was reported that a Seattle-based company was developing porn for Google Glass, the tech giant has announced a ban on adult-oriented apps for their new space-age goggles.

“We don’t allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts or sexually explicit material,” according to Google’s Glass platform developer policies, which were updated Saturday to offer more information about what developers can and cannot do with the software they make for Glass, which Google refers to as “Glassware.”

It’s not clear what this means for the future of porn on Google Glass. MiKandi’s representative said in response to the new policy, “We’re not going to just stop. We have to think about our next strategy.”

Meanwhile, Pinterest is relaxing its ban on nudity. We wonder if this means we can repost that dildo photo they took down last month.

Brooklyn Cops Stop Condom Busts

condoms

As we reported back in March, the NYPD has been arresting people on suspicion of prostitution simply for carrying condoms. The practice is especially problematic since the same city also distributes free condoms to help combat STIs. Now there’s some good news out of Brooklyn where prosecutors, bowing to pressure from sex worker advocates, have ordered the police to stop collecting condoms as evidence.

Prosecutors will continue to use condoms as evidence in trafficking cases, a policy that remains controversial among sex worker advocates. Still, this new rule should help to reduce the number of arrests and reduce fears of getting arrested simply for carrying protection.
