I'm sure many of you may already be subscribers to this Discussion Group, but thought I would post it here for the newer guys. It deals with the sexual side affects of prostate cancer.  As opposed to Healing Well, the discussion is frank enough to let you use words like M*asturbation without censorship.
 
It is part of the http://www.ustoo.org  boards.  It is a hugely helpful board while dealing with what is often a very difficult subject.

Hi Paul,
I just joined this group. I didn't know about it and glad to have the insight wherever we can get it. Its early for us but we are already seeing some improvement and I'm sure this will help. Now...how does it work. I joined but can't figure out how to get to the discussion group. Maybe I'm just not seeing it. Hate to be so stupid but figured you could help me.
Just wanted to say too, you have helped us alot when I have had questions. Your down to earth answers have gotten us thru some very scary times. I always look forward to what you have to say. Thank you.

Looks like for you to post a message, you have to send an email to the entire list of members and they will probably reply. Not sure, but I don't think this is a forum where you can post and someone just reply. I maybe missing something.

Paul -- thanks for the link. That is new to me. Like the other posters, I'm not sure how it works. It says there are no archives -- so it will clearly be different to this board. I am maybe missing something too :-)

If you registered, you should have gotten an email digest of questions by now.  If you haven't, you will in the next day or two. this site is set up as an old fashioned list serve...remember those?  No server space to hold the info, like healingwell, but just an email server who sends out packets of emails.
 
have you gotten any yet?
