Michael Douglas Licks the Big C (beats cancer, too)

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3375500.html

Michael Douglas has opened up about his past diagnosis, revealing that oral sex, not smoking or drinking, caused his type of throat cancer.

In a candid new interview with U.K.'s The Guardian, Douglas admits that his illness was caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).

"Without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV, which actually comes about from cunnilingus," the "Behind the Candelabra" star, 68, explains.

Douglas, who fought a six-month battle with the disease from August 2010 until January 2011, also confesses that he thought that his battle with cancer would be a fatal one. He says at first he assumed the stress from his son Cameron's legal troubles played a big factor in his sickness.

"I did worry if the stress caused by my son's incarceration didn't help trigger it. But yeah, it's a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer," Douglas, who is married to Catherine Zeta-Jones, notes. "And if you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it."

The reason why it looks like a Venus Flytrap is because, in a sense, that's exactly what it is.

Looks like Michael's on a campaign to prove he doesn't live behind the candelabra.

So he ate a bitch that had HPV on her pussy. Strange he got cancer from HPV. First time I hear of a male getting cancer from it. It's usually females that get cervical cancer from HPV, it affects them much more than males.

Re: Michael Douglas Licks the Big C (beats cancer, too)

Probably gave himself cancer. Carried it in his peen. Stuck the peen in the vjay. Licked the vjay. Yup, you gave yourself cancer. Whoops.

Actually, I'm glad he's made this public, most men don't know that HPV can cause oral cancer. Mostly you hear about cervical cancer (which is much, much more common).

I'm a-scared now to eat the muff on new chicks I meet. (But that won't stop me! I'm notoriously careless when it comes to s-e-x.)

Would an HPV vaccine prevent cancer in males?

So what I take from this is:

Man going down on women = bad

Woman going down on Man = still okay?

Re: Michael Douglas Licks the Big C (beats cancer, too)

Trial separation...

http://t.entertainment.msn.com/micha...ate?toc=celebs

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones separate

Since they were last photographed together in late April, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have taken vacations with their kids -- but without one another -- and made various red-carpet appearances by themselves.

Now, as People reports in this week's cover story, the longtime power couple has decided to spend some time apart. "They're taking a break," a "close confidante" of the actors tells the magazine.

It seems part of the problem has been the effects of Douglas' battle with cancer, which began in 2010, and Zeta-Jones' diagnosis and treatment for bipolar II disorder "The stress has taken a toll on their marriage," says a friend of the pair.

Parents to Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10, the couple are still hoping to work out the conflicts they're currently facing, according to a family friend, and are not currently pursuing a legal separation. "They want the best for their kids, no matter what happens," says a source.

Zeta-Jones's publicist, Cece Yorke, confirmed the split news to The Associated Press via email on Wednesday morning, saying the Oscar winners "are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage." A phone call to a representative for Douglas wasn't immediately returned.

Douglas, 68, and Zeta-Jones, 43, began dating in 1999, marrying the next year at the Plaza Hotel in New York. They reportedly decided to take a break after Douglas came home from the 2013 Cannes Film Festival in May, where he was promoting "Behind the Candelabra."
