We know that human papilllomavirus (HPV) is bad for us ladies, as it can lead to cervical cancer. And given the statistic that an estimated 80% of us will have HPV by the time we're 50, it's a good thing that the HPV vaccine Gardasil is now available for those of us who meet its age requirements (9 - 26). But what about the boys? Did you know that certain strains of HPV cause anal cancer? It's rare (1% of sexually-active men are diagnosed yearly), but rates are 35 times higher in gay and bisexual men. It turns out that resident Jezegay Ryan Creed—the Ann Coulter fan and Vulva fragrance pusher—is a guinea pig in a study right now testing Gardasil on men. Luckily for us, he lived to tell us all about it.
