OK...time for THE NEWS...

I'm sure that we ALL have heard that "Fellatio reduces risk of breast cancer"...of course, it was all in jest....just some College humor..

..and, what about "Ogling Breasts Makes Men Live Longer."??...yep, another hoax...well intended, BOTH of them...heh...but untrue all the same....

so, we come to "Oral Sex Makes Pregnancies Safer"...which, of course, IS true...heh...oh yeah....read it and weep, ladies....

"The explanation? Semen contains a growth factor that helps persuade a mother's immune system to accept sperm. Regular exposure before pregnancy helps her immune system get used to her partner's sperm.

As for the link to cancer, it's just possible that semen could have some effect on cancer of the cervix or ovaries. There's research showing oral delivery of TGFbeta (transforming growth factor beta), one of the key molecules in semen, can increase the number and activity of "natural killer" cells that are important in recognising and killing aberrant cells that give rise to tumours."

and, not to be missed in this article...is THIS little bit of clinical wisdom...

"Regular ejaculation, through sex or masturbation, may prevent carcinogens accumulating in the prostate gland, the researchers suggest."...

..uh....excuse me for a bit....

Comments so far:

I have long speculated that frequent jerking off was going to some day be proven to "prolong my life" in one form or another. I have been waiting for a study to come out showing that blowing a load at least every day (or 3 to 4 times, wether with sex or self induced)lowers the risk of prostate cancer. Good news for me!
Now we just need to get the Cancer Society to sponsor "Masturbation Day", or better yet - Log Flogg-athon! We can gather sponsors and see who can do the most in a single weekend....all to promote public health, of course.

I'm not sure the American Cancer Society is ready for "masturbation day" yet.....

And the eye doctors are of course opposed to it. I do look forward to telling my doctor I shouldn't need that exam.

Has anyone done dermatological research regarding dormant follicles in the palms?
