sex and chemo

I would like to know if it is safe to have oral sex with a chemo pt.
fcl responded:
Yes, it's safe. Getting chemo doesn't make you radioactive OTOH, don't be disappointed if your partner doesn't feel up to having sex. Chemo can really knock the stuffing out of a person.
There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

Yeah, what FCL said!!!
