Don’t Panic About Michael Douglas’s Oral Sex Cancer

74317648

Before Michael Douglas’s revelation that his throat cancer may have been caused by cunnilingus-contracted HPV makes you do anything drastic, sex-life-wise, remember: Both FDA-approved HPV vaccines (Gardasil and Cervarix) protect against HPV-16, the strain of the virus that causes the most cancer, including oropharyngeal cancer. The vaccines are recommended for current and future oral-sex givers and receivers ages 11 to 26. As for blow-job-induced super gonorrhea, I have nothing for you.
