Anal cancer is an uncommon malignancy that starts in the anus — the opening at the end of the rectum. The American Cancer Society estimates that 8,200 cases of anal cancer would be diagnosed in 2017 and about 1,100 deaths a year from anal cancer. The 5-year survival rate following diagnosis of anal cancer is 60% for men and 71% for women.
Most anal cancers (80%) are diagnosed in people who are over age 60. Prior to age 35, anal cancer is more common in men, with an incidence rate 6 times higher in single men as compared to marrried men. That is because receptive anal intercourse or sodomy is strongly related to anal cancer.
Another major risk factor for anal cancer is infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) that results in genital warts and is a cause of cervical cancer in women. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC), HPV is the most common STD in the U.S. and affects around 79 million Americans.
Eileen Reslen reports for Page Six that on June 5, 2019, actress Marcia Cross, 57, best known for her role in the ABC television series “Desperate Housewives,” appeared on “CBS This Morning” to give a health update more than a year after her anal cancer diagnosis.
Cross also divulged that her cancer is likely related to her 61-year-old husband Tom Mahoney’s cancer. Mahoney, a stockbroker, was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2009, years before Cross was diagnosed with anal cancer. Cross said that doctors told her the same type of HPV that triggered her husband’s throat cancer could cause cancer in the anus. Both Cross and Mahoney are in remission.
In other words, doctors believe that the sexually-transmitted HPV caused both Mahoney’s throat cancer and Cross’ subsequent anal cancer. Given the timing of the two cancers, Mahoney likely transmitted the HPV to Cross via anal intercourse.
Typical of the Left’s in-your-face defiance and utter lack-of-shame, Cross made her anal cancer into a virtue. She said she was able to get through her anal cancer diagnosis with the help of a group of girlfriends, whom she called her “Anal Angels”. She said:
“I know that there are people who are ashamed. You have cancer! Do you have to then also feel ashamed like you did something bad because it took up residence in your anus? I mean, come on, really. There’s enough on your plate. I kept saying if this doesn’t kill me, it’s the best thing that could’ve ever happened because the experience of being loved like that? It blew my mind.”
Although anal sex is frequently assumed to be confined to the homoexual male population, it has become more “popular” among heterosexual couples under 45. According to a CDC report, “Sexual Behavior, Sexual Attraction and Sexual Identity in the United States,” which polled thousands of people between the ages of 15 and 44 from 2006 through 2008, as many as 44% of straight men and 36% of straight women admitted to having had anal sex at least once in their lives.
Hugo Schwyzer, a professor gender studies and history at Pasadena City College, maintains that “butt sex,” which he extols as “the most selfless of common sexual acts” given the amount of pain the “bottoming” partner endures in its practice, is on the rise due to its frequent appearance in both heterosexual porn and mainstream media as well as an increased pressure from heterosexual male partners. Schwyzer cited several sources casting doubt on how pleasurable anal sex is for women.
Put simply, the anus is not biologically designed to be penetrated.
As I explained in my 2013 post, “Medical consequences of homosexual sexual behaviors“:
The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In contrast, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an “exit-only” passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic. Moreover, the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids.
Furthermore, ejaculate has components that are immunosuppressive, designed to allow the sperm to evade the immune defenses of the female. The fragility of the anus and rectum, along with the immunosuppressive effect of ejaculate, make anal-genital intercourse a most efficient manner of transmitting HIV and other infections. Below is a list of diseases found with extraordinary frequency among male homosexual practitioners as a result of anal intercourse. Sexual transmission of some of these diseases is so rare in the exclusively heterosexual population as to be virtually unknown. Lesbians are also at higher risk for these STDs:
- Anal cancer
- Chlamydia trachomatis
- Giardia lamblia
- Herpes simplex virus
- Human immunodeficiency virus
- Human papilloma virus (HPV)
- Isospora belli
- Viral hepatitis types B & C
- Syphilis: gay men contracted syphilis at 3 to 4 times the rate of heterosexuals.
- HIV/AIDS: A study based upon statistics from 1986 through 1990 estimated that 20-year-old gay men had a 50% chance of becoming HIV positive by age 55. As of June 2001, nearly 64% of men with AIDS were men who have had sex with men, i.e., anal sex.
