60. 'Outed what? That he has a cancer caused by HPV-16. So what?

He said, "Ah, without getting too specific, this cancer is caused by something called HPV, which actually comes about from cunnilingus."

"This particular cancer", the same as what I had, is formally called squamous cell carcinoma and about 60% of it is caused by HPV-16 transmitted through oral sex.

The cancer isn't transmitted, but the HPV is and is present in over 70 million Americans.

Do you really think oral sex is so awful that only a few people have ever participated in it?

Oral sex is less "ageless." Nearly 60 percent of the participants under 65 years old said they had engaged in oral sex in the previous 12 months, compared with 31 percent for the over-75s.
It's estimated more than 1/3 of all ninth graders have experienced oral sex and over 40% of college students.
