Sex and Cancer


Hear Saketh Guntupalli talk about his new book, Sex and Cancer: Intimacy, Romance and Love After Diagnosis and Treatment. The seeds of this work were planted at Spotlight Health two years ago, when Guntupalli participated in a conversation about flibanserin, then a newly approved drug nicknamed “Viagra for women.” A gynecologic oncologist, Guntupalli realized the drug might be of interest to women with cancer, and launched a clinical trial in that population soon afterwards. Now, he’s written a book that takes an honest look at the physical and psychological components of intimacy, what cancer can do to them, and how a loving union can thrive after a diagnosis.
