I was curious about oral sex and using non lubricated trojan enz condoms. Is it safe? Does it protect me from std's? Can a woman get pregnant by having oral sex with a guy? On a couple of websites the person said that you can get throat cancer from oral sex and even kissing. Will a condom protect me from that as well?

Let me try again.

No, you cannot get cancer from kissing.

The tricky thing about HPV is that a person is infected but may not have symptoms. Most people with HPV do not develop symptoms. In about 90% of cases, the body's immune system clears the HPV naturally within 2 years.

But, sometimes, HPV infections are not cleared and can cause genital warts, rarely, warts in the throat, cervical cancer and less common but serious cancers, including cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, anus and oropharynx (back of the throat including base of the tongue and tonsils).

You can protect yourself by getting vaccinated but both vaccines, Cervarix and Gardasil, are most effective when give at 11 and 12 years of age, before becoming sexually active.

Using a latex condom during sex can reduce the spread of STDs including HPV.

People can also lower their chances of getting HPV by being in a faithful relationship with one partner; limiting their number of sex partners; and choosing a partner who has had no or few prior sex partners. But even people with only one lifetime sex partner can get HPV. And it may not be possible to determine if a partner who has been sexually active in the past is currently infected. That's why the only sure way to prevent HPV is to avoid all sexual activity.

All the information which I have given you is from the CDC website: http://www.cdc.gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv.htm

Thank you for answering my question Marryann. It kind of helps. Can I get cancer from kissing? Can I get cancer from oral sex? Can I get cancer from using Trojan non lubricated condoms for oral sex? I ask because the whole throat cancer thing and hpv thing isn't clear. There are some folks who are saying thatyou can get throat cancer or hpv from kissing. Or from oral sex, even if its protected. Half of them don't even mention using a condom during oral sex which is questionable.

A woman cannot become pregnant by having oral sex.

Non-lubricated Trojan ENZ condoms are latex condoms. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend the consistent and correct use of male latex condoms to reduce the risk of STD transmission.

According to the National Cancer Institute, oral HPV (human papillomavirus) infection causes some cancers of the oropharynx, which is the middle part of the throat,including the soft palate, the base of the tongue and the tonsils.

Human papillomaviruses are a group of more than 150 related viruses. Of these, more than 40 HPV types can be sexually transmitted.  HPV infection spread through oral sex have led to the increased incidence of oropharyngeal cancers, which include tumors of the throat, tonsils and the base of the tongue.

HPV is passed on during vaginal, anal and oral sex.

I hope this answers your question,
