Sex and cancer

Sex and cancer is one of the toughest topics to write about. In past years I have approached it via Pure Romance parties for women with breast cancer, where in addition to talking about sex in a fun way, we had an opportunity to ask serious questions of a psychiatrist who specializes in human sexuality and cancer.

Today I read this powerful article by New York Times editor Dana Jennings, who writes a weekly piece about his aggressive prostate cancer. He could help you understand this most delicate of issues.

Love in the Time of Prostate Cancer

    that pretty well sums up how it was for me and Pam...
    love intensified beats lust anywhere, anyhow, any time...

    Hi Jill,

    I posted about this article too! So, I guess great minds think alike. I'm glad that you seem to have found a potential solution to dealing with your arm. I'm getting closer to getting some better hats.
