What if cancer patients got together to design their own sex shop?

Part research project, part performance, part business start-up, Sex with Cancer aims to hold a public conversation about illness and intimacy.

Sex with Cancer is for people living with and beyond cancer, and for their admirers – those who love them, who care for them, who are hot for them.

Submit your questions about sex and cancer, take part in interactive and online performances later in the year, and help us launch the world’s first sex shop owned and run by cancer patients.

Head to the Sex with Cancer website to submit a question.
