Mike Savage Discovers Gay Oral Sex Increases Throat Cancer

Mike Savage, the radio host who competes with Tony Perkins to say the most ridiculous and misleading things about homos, has taken cancer research to a new level, finding results that even the world’s top oncologists did not: blowing dudes leads to throat cancer.

So what if what doctors found is that “oral sex” is leading to increase in throat, tonsil, and tongue — without ever mentioning it was male-on-male oral sex. In fact this type of cancer, caused by HPV, is what had doctors for years recommending vaccinating girls against before they became sexually active (to prevent cervical cancer), and is now what has them calling for boys to get the same shots.

Doctors say that changing sexual behaviors — earlier sex, more partners and especially oral sex — are contributing to a new epidemic of orpharyngeal squamous cell cancers, those of the throat, tonsils and base of the tongue. These cancers can be deadly, and are striking men at a younger age and in increasing numbers.

[…] Doctors also think that cancer is likely to develop in the first area of exposure in women, usually the vagina. The woman may then develop later immunity in the throat.
But with more oral sex, often before vaginal sex, female throat cancers could increase, they say.

What doctors did not say was “dudes blowing each other more and more” is a cause. Not that Savage needs science to conclude as much.

    Please! If this was true, P-Town would be a ghost town.

  • ron

    ….and yet I have a sudden urge to blow somebody…..

  • Joseph

    Does the size of the cock matter? I usually go for guys with big cocks. Seems I might be in for throat cancer as opposed to mouth or tongue. Cause, ya know, big cocks get further down my throat! Man I love being gay!

  • FreddyMertz

    Why does he have it?….lol. Speaking of…I’m with Ron…these days you can order in.

    Mike Savage should be put in a cage that dangles above swarming hungry lions.

    Michael Alan Weiner (Michael Savage’s real name) had a huge crush on Allen Ginsberg 40+ years ago and used to carry a photo of himself swimming naked with Ginsberg as his calling card, or so I have read many times. He evidently was wiped out emotionally when Ginsberg rejected him, and so he Anglicized his name and decided to be an outrageous rightwinger since there’s always plenty of money to be made in appealing to ignorant people who just enjoy hating people to make themselves feel better about themselves.

    Oral cancer more likely caused by drinking that God aweful Rockstar Energy Drinks whipped up by his family, where his son is the CEO and wife is the CFO of both Savage Production and Rockstar!

    Love how the article has “WATCH: Michael Douglas Battles Throat Cancer” in one of the sidebars.

  • Otis Criblecoblis

    Savage is a freak & no doubt a closet case…hephaestion @ #6 is right on.

  • Jeff K.

    Life just isn’t worth living if you can’t get your gaggin’ on.

    I’ll take the cancer.

  • Marc

    I’m with Jeff K. I’ll risk the cancer, thanks.

    By the way, I have listened to this guy’s radio show a handful of times. He is easily the most boring hate monger ever…it takes him at least 10 commercial breaks before he makes his freakin point. Entertainment value: zero.
