    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Intimacy and Sexuality and Breast Cancer

    I am a 25 year breast cancer survivor (hooray!) and sex educator. I'm interested in talking about the sexual challenges you have or are facing, what you're doing and what you need to experience pleasurable intimacy and sexuality. I have lots of experience from my personal journey and from working with lots of women over the years. And I want to learn from you.

    What are your thoughts about how body image and self-esteem impact your sense of being beautiful, desirable and sexy? Are you affected by our culture that places such a high value on having perfect breasts ~ sex is used to sell so many products and we no longer fit that narrow definition of beauty. Have you been able to define your beauty on your terms?

    Let's talk about this and other aspects to intimacy and sexuality so that we can all benefit!
