Michael Douglas blames oral sex for throat cancer

2013-06-03 12:33

London – Actor Michael Douglas says that his throat cancer was caused by a virus he contracted by performing oral sex on women.

The Guardian newspaper published an interview today in which Douglas blamed cunnilingus for the grave malady that was diagnosed in 2010.

The newspaper also quoted doctors who were sceptical about his claim.

The 68-year-old Douglas has been cancer-free for more than two years after receiving extensive chemotherapy and has returned to acting.

Douglas has starred in many movies, including Basic Instinct and Fatal Attraction. He is currently appearing in an acclaimed bio-pic about Liberace.

He is married to the actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.
