    So is the implication his wife has HPV? Maybe she's mad he told on her and that's why he's back pedalling away from his original statement?

    Michael Douglas Clarifies Quotes About Getting Cancer from Oral Sex : People.com

    "Michael Douglas did not say cunnilingus was the cause of his cancer," his rep says in a statement. "It was discussed that oral sex is a suspected cause of certain oral cancers as doctors in the article point out, but he did not say it was the specific cause of his personal cancer."
    ...

    Over the weekend, in an interview with the Guardian, he was asked whether he regretted drinking and smoking, because both can lead to oral cancers.

    "No. Because, without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV [human papillomavirus], which actually comes about from cunnilingus," he was quoted as saying.



    He does appear to be backpedaling because it's fairly clear from his original statement that he believes that his particular cancer did come from HPV. The statements above appear (to me) to contradict each other.

    I wish he had stated it in such a way that cunnilingus wasn't the only culprit. Fellatio can give you HPV in the mouth too, but you don't hear the press explaining that. Oh no, we must always blame women, even for Michael Douglas' throat cancer. I wonder how many women will now be deprived of oral...

    Guess no one uses dental dams!

    I, too, thought it was odd that he would blame his oral cancer on oral sex with women/a woman and not the smoking or drinking he's engaged in. Interesting.

    That might be CZJs concern, but MD was pretty well known for his sexcapades.

    Lots of women get HPV and never even know. Most of the time it clears up on its own. Mine did. The problem I have with all of this is its more slut shaming. She was promiscuous, she got this STD, then I got cancer. When I was told I had it there was no way to tell if I had it before B or if he was a carrier and gave it to me.

    Exactly. That man was f'ing around long before his wife was even born. Why would the assumption be that he got HPV from her?

    Bc they specifically mention his wife in the article and the year they were married...as if that was supposed to be telling in some way.

    In another article, they quoted his ex as saying she did not have HPV either.

    I don't see this as a case of slut shaming at all. Even if it was wrongly implied that he got HPV from his wife, no one implied she was ever promiscuous.
