So, in the midst of being 8 months post surgery and struggling to recover erectile capabilities, I have been checking around about alternative forms of therapy that could complement what I am already doing.  One physician suggested looking into seeing a tantra specialist, which could help with a few different areas: 
 
- adjusting to the new reality of my sexuality, physically, emotionally and spiritually
- learning not to focus on the penis as much and concentrating on the whole experience of sex
- full body orgasms as opposed to penis focused orgasms, and orgasms without erections
 
I have talked to a couple of specialists, and they have said they have had some experience with prostate cancer patients.  The conversations have been somewhat enlightening, but I haven't pursued this therapy avenue yet.
 
I'm curious as to anyone has tried this, and what their experience has been...?

I hope that you good luck with this. Tantra is a very emotional & sensual. There is a game by Kama Sutra designed by Dr. Ava Cadell called Tantric Lovers Game. Intimacy is the goal, sex is secondary. Maybe others will follow now......

Raheeb, I haven't heard of this before, but why not try it. sex is more than intercourse or orgasms......but they're nice to have, too. :) please keep us updated if you pursue it. kat
