Daniel Willingson, from Phoenix, Arizona wants to know…
Don, can people still have sex during radiation and chemotherapy?
A creepy question to be sure, but a common one. I was going to avoid this one all together, but Daniel attached some naked pictures of his sister, so I feel like I owe him something.
Yes Daniel, sex during cancer is not only possible it’s encouraged. But I’m not going to lie to you; it’s a lot like watching a Dodger game.
Oh sure, there’s a lot of enthusiasm in the beginning, but by the middle innings you seem to have completely lost your grasp on even the most rudimentary fundamentals. Pretty soon, you’re forced to go to your bullpen way earlier than you wanted to.
By the bottom of the ninth your all star closer has walked the bases loaded and you’re starting to wonder if maybe you should just give up and watch those three episodes of Top Chef you have on Tivo.
But after all, it is the American pastime, and with a little luck, and a couple of long fly balls to the warning track, it all ends with a victory for the home team and a grateful nod to the big guy up above.
You head to the showers with a big smile, eternally grateful that tomorrow is a travel day.
