Looks like going down on your girl doesn't only make her happy. Apparently, it can also help—wait for it—prevent cancer.

Yes, you read that right. Cunnilingus has the added benefit of cancer prevention!

According to a study on Evolutionary Psychology conducted by the State University of New York, performing oral sex on your girl enhances both you and your partner's production of cancer-preventing hormones such as oxytocin and DHEA.

The research monitored over 150 straight and lesbian couples. Half of the participants were told to concentrate heavily on orally pleasuring their partners, while the other half were told not to. The results show a notable difference in stress, intimacy, and anxiety levels, as well as in sleep quality in favor of couples who did the deed.

The most important discovery though was all about the body generating generous amounts of hormones that can help us remain cancer-free.

DHEA is a natural steroid that slows aging, improves thinking skills, and gives a sudden increase in strength and energy. It has also been proven to slow the progress of Alzheimer's disease. Oxytocin a.k.a. the love hormone, on the other hand, is responsible for making us sexually attracted to our partners. Both of these natural hormones are believed to provide our bodies protection from cancer and heart-related diseases.

Another effect of orally exploring her southern bush is that it can increase her chances of getting pregnant. Based on the same study, women are more likely to retain sperm after a cunnilingus-assisted orgasm.

The study also suggests that performing oral sex on your girl can help reduce the risk of infidelity. You see, aside from boosting sexual attraction, the increase in oxytocin also positively affects how she feels for her partner.

Just a stern warning though: despite its many benefits, oral sex can also lead to acquiring sexually transmitted diseases, just like what happened to Michael Douglas. The Hollywood veteran was diagnosed with thoat cancer in 2010 and has stated that he acquired the disease by contracting the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which can actually be transferred via cunnilingus.

However, Douglas has also said that the best cure for it is performing more cunnilingus. So, does that make it even, sir?
