Oral Sex and Breast Cancer

I was listening to the radio the other day and heard a rather interesting interview.  The doctor was talking about how swallowing semen may help prevent breast cancer.

WHAT?!

Thank God for Google because you know I had to do my own research as a journalist.  Sure enough, there was a report, dating back to 2003, that indicates women who perform the act of fellatio and swallow semen on a regular basis, one to two times a week, may reduce their risk of breast cancer by up to 40 percent. 

The study, conducted at North Carolina State University, involved over 15,000 women suspected of having performed regular fellatio and swallowed the ejaculatory fluid, over a 10-year-period.  The researchers found that those who performed the act regularly, one to two times a week, had a lower occurrence of breast cancer than those who had not. There was no increased risk, however, for those who did not regularly perform.

Dr. A.J. Kramer of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, who was not involved in the research was quoted as saying,  “I am surprised by these findings, but am also excited that the researchers may have discovered a relatively easy way to lower the occurrence of breast cancer in women.”  (I really hope this comment was made by a female).

I wonder how soon it will be before we see men wearing tee-shirts with the slogan “Once a Day Keeps Cancer Away?”

  1. This is a very interesting study to say the least!!!! It does make one have to question whoever even thought of the connection! And where in the world did they get 15,000 women to report about this very private practice? Truly mind blowing (oops that wasn’t a pun!)

  2. I was curious about your blog title, so I had to click and see for myself. I’m with you, Eileen, how did they get so many women to report about such a private act? Even if it was in the name of science! And, reducing cancer by 40%. That I’m finding hard to swallow! (umm.. pun definitely intended!) 🙂

  3. Researchers must have done their research at a brothel. Do they think the fluid drops into the breasts? That’s all we need; men to think that this is the answer to reduce breast cancer, and their penis’ have more power than they already do. Next research will be the caloric value of semen. Gee, Bev, the things you write about…If I were you, I’d keep my mouth shut…I certainly am!!!!! LOL

  4. Well that is interesting and disturbing, all the world needs is more men thinking that there penis is gods gift to women. I was wondering if the researches said how many of those 15,000 women ended up with STD’s. You may not get breast cancer, but what the hell you will probably die of AIDS, or some other nasty horrible STD.
