Michael Douglas Claims Oral Sex With HPV Infected Woman Caused Throat Cancer
It was scary when Michael Douglas revealed that he was suffering from stage four throat cancer. We had all pretty much attributed that to his love of the booze and smoking, but that’s not the case.
He talked to The Guardian about his cancer bout and it was a TMI moment, for sure. He revealed that he doesn’t regret at all how many years he’s spent smoking and drinking because they weren’t what caused his cancer in the first place.
He said, “No. Because without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV, which actually comes about from cunnilingus. I did worry if the stress caused by my son’s incarceration didn’t help trigger it. But year, it’s a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer. And if you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it. With this kind of cancer, 95 percent of the time it doesn’t come back.”
His rep chimed in to say, “He did not say this was the cause of his cancer. In a discussion of oral cancer, he said this is one of the suspected causes. He never made it personal.”
Isn’t that kind of what he did? What do you think?
