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.

Harvey is not safe.

He is too short - from his lips to his lung, it is shorter than 9 inches. Dic ks carry HPV too!

Michael, even if this is true, hereafter just say you are thankful that you are cured and don't blame the cat... Remember bro, men don't kiss and or eat and tell.

Why would he go public with this information? He has school aged children, doesn't he understand the conflict these statements can cause for them? He already has one drug addict son in jail is he looking to spend every holiday visiting his kids behind bars?

I can't see how this news helps his marriage. Again Michael, you should have kept your mouth shut.

His statement, if true ( that he said it), just goes to show the reason why celebs receive " honarary" degrees.

IIRC he went to treatment for sexual addiction years ago. That's what broke up his previous marriage before CZJ.
