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.

*********** is also a cure for ingrown toe nails, hemorrhoids, shingles and whatever else that ails you.

This is really a service.....few people know that the epidemic of oral cancers are hpv related! Boys and girls need to be given the HPV vaccine! It can save lives!

Why? Only girls should have the vaccine? Where do you think most are contracting it from?? Are you insinuating that boys can't have HPV?”

Gee, maybe he'll do a PSA which would be appropriate and quite stunning.

Seriously, did we really need to know this? Another wonderful written tidbit for the Douglas Family Tree for the kids and grandkids to celebrate. :(

I really feel sorry for his young children who will surely be tormented at school after this TMI news has come out.

I thought he was supposed to be married to what's her name......the actress. He was in bad taste blabbing to the world about his doing oral sex to a woman........especially b/c he has children that may be reading this. He just wants to be the baddest M F in town. Mostly his throat cancer was caused by smoking and drinking
