The first sex toy store for people with cancer has opened in the UK

A sex toy store created by and for people with cancer has opened in the UK, and it’s the first of its kind.

Providing a much-needed space for current and former cancer patients, the Sex With Cancer online store sells products and pleasure kits specially designed for cancer survivors and those living with cancer. The site was also set up to provide information and conversations about illness and intimacy, as well as share artwork on the subject, and there’s *tons* to learn.

Officially opening its doors on October 7 across the UK, Sex With Cancer was co-founded by two artists and former cancer patients, Brian Lobel and Joon-Lynn Goh, in partnership with sex toy store Sh! Female erotic emporium.

Explaining more about the project, the organization says, “Sex with Cancer is an online store, artwork and public campaign exploring how people living with and beyond cancer can take charge of their own health and their well-being.”

The site was created in collaboration with patients, nurses, psychosex therapists, pleasure activists and sex toy specialists, making it the first comprehensive shop and resource of its kind in the UK.

As for the products sold, you will see many recognizable toys, pleasure kits, and lubricants for sale on the site. The outlet says it aims to address the “direct and indirect ways” in which people’s sex lives are affected by cancer – ranging from surgery and scarring to weight loss and weight gain as a result of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, loss of interest in sex, exhaustion, erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness and increased risk of infection.

“People with cancer face many emotions, traumas, and priorities, all of which could make sex less desirable or feasible,” the site says.
