Not to let Michael Douglas have the last word, researchers from the National Cancer Institute have discovered a screening tool that may detect HPV antibodies years before they cause cancerous symptoms. An actual test may be some years off, but it could be an amazing find for sexual health, as oral and throat HPV cases are likely spread through oral sex. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/06/17/scientists-discover-potential-screening-tool-for-hpv-that-causes-mouth-and-throat-cancers/

Calling Garrison Keillor! Our latest state profile features Minnesota ranking in at #8! Seems like these "prairie home companions" know a thing or two when it comes to sexual health.

Neither the prevalence of porn or sex addiction is included in the Rankings. Do you think it should be? Tell us why!

A jury in Bexar County, Texas just acquitted Ezekiel Gilbert of charges that he murdered a 23-year-old Craigslist escort—agreeing that because he was attempting to retrieve the $150 he'd paid to Lenora Ivie Frago, who wouldn't have sex with him, his actions were justified.

A comprehensive measure and state-by-state ranking of sexual health in the United States
Introduction
Sexual Health Rankings™ is a research and advocacy project led by Variance, LLC in partnership with the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health. The goals of the project are to: 1) construct a composite indicator to measure and rate the sexual health of the United States population by state; 2) identify research needs and contribute to the development of population-based measures and indicators of sexual health; and 3) engage a broad group of stakeholders -- including public health professionals, clinicians, policy makers, and the general public -- in improving sexual health.
