    Can you die from performing or receiving oral sex? As shocking as this question sounds, it's a question that we all need to ask. And the answer, as usual, is a complicated one.

    Many of us think that alcohol and cigarettes are the main causes of oral cancer, and that notion is not far from the truth. When actor Michael Douglas was diagnosed with oral cancer at age 66 last summer, the media pointed to his longtime half-a-pack-a-day smoking habit. However tobacco is no longer the leading cause of oral cancer. The new player in town seems to be oral sex.

    Habits have changed. Fewer people of all ages smoke cigarettes, but more young people are having oral sex in place of intercourse. Of course oral sex is nothing new, but since the 60's trends in this area have been changing. This change in behavior may be the reason that oral cancer now is thought to be primarily caused by exposure to HPV.

    Oral sex among teenagers has increased, mainly due to the misconception that sexually transmitted diseases cannot be transmitted from partner to partner in this manner. The irony in this scenario is that the consequences of oral sex can be as dangerous as unprotected intercourse.

    As the sexual behavior of people changes, so must the awareness of it's potential consequences. Perhaps a throwback to the Clinton era, teens don't consider oral sex to be real sex
