Swallow It

My first thought when getting this email regarding throat cancer due to oral sex was the graphic.

"Just gulp, honey. You don't have to feel it go down......unless you want to, of course."

I'll be honest, I didn't click on the link. Ok, actually I did, but the link didn't work.

I love how Cleveland Clinic think women actually perform oral sex. They'd pretend to (or rather) have throat cancer to avoid having to go down on a guy.

I mean - that's what I've heard. I don't really have any frame of reference.....except what I read or hear about on sitcoms. But I don't think a big selling point in a major marketing health care campaign is that some guys like to swallow.

And I'm assuming - again, no experience - that you can't really show a guy going down on a girl in your trifold brochure. Or a virtual one. So that scenario is out.

I would love to have been at the marketing table the first time this was thrown out.....or agreed upon. Oh, how the conversations must have gone.

I'm guessing - and it's only a guess - that the Otolaryngology department is probably working a little harder on their development campaign today.

Oral is my preferred form of the mating activities.
Da-um, I can get cancer from it? Oh well won't stop me.

I read this earlier with considerable interest, and I just want to put on record that I have no comment to make. (Gulp!)

Why didn't they just use the ol' stand by stock photo of a woman with a banana in her mouth?
