After prostate cancer treatment, men who have sex with men (MSM) often face sexual health challenges that are different from heterosexual men.
A recent study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests that the needs of MSM are not always met by traditional approaches, which tend to target heterosexuals.
Scientists interviewed sixteen MSM (mean age 65) who had had prostate cancer. The men were asked about their sexual function, relationships, and emotional health.
Erectile dysfunction, incontinence, orgasms, and relationships were of special concern for the men.
However, many felt that interactions with healthcare providers and other support networks did not address issues specific to MSM, such as the importance of sex when starting new relationships.
