Michael Douglas

Oral Sex

Michael Douglas
says his near-death bout with throat cancer was caused by an STD he picked up while giving oral sex. TMI, Michael!!!!

Douglas dropped the bombshell in an interview with the Guardian UK -- telling the paper that his particular form of throat cancer was caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) that was contracted from "cunnilingus" ... a.k.a performing oral sex on a female.

He explains, "It's a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer. If you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it." The last part is NOT supported by doctors.

FYI -- HPV is more famously known to cause cervical and anal cancer.

Douglas was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer back in 2010. He underwent weeks of radiation and chemo.

He has been cancer free for over two years.

Or it could have been that fact that he's been a heavy smoker for years.

Wow ...    

I never would have known. Although I first thought TMI, I am grateful he spoke out about it. Now the masses will be aware, there is another reason to not go home at the end of the night with just anyone!!! Protect yourselves. Stop the spread of STD and HPV, they can kill.

So I guess that means that either he or Catherine have been engaging in some extra curricular activity.

As much as I respect Michael as an actor I wouldn't put any stock into his medical theories.
