Candida Royalle — Sexuality and Cancer — Dec. 3, 2013

300px-Candida_Royalle_adjustedCandida Royalle, aka Candice – – returned to the program. The April 23rd archived program featured her erotic films from a female perspective. This show’s topic was SEXUALITY & CANCER, two words that some may think don’t go together. Dr. Diana and Candice discussed her personal experiences with cancer, and Rebecca, a caller, contributed to this intimate, informative conversation. John Wayne’s quote is appropriate: “Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.” Many women wish their oncologists would ask, “How’s your sex life?” We discussed the sexual fallout of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, and a flat-lined libido are common. New perspectives may emerge: stop wasting time, start living your life better, and give what you can – while you can – in all the relationships that matter. Also, creating a real relationship with yourself, sexual or otherwise, is a true gift to glean from your experience.
