The Cancer Orgasm

When having an orgasm, our heart beats faster and our breathing speeds up and gets heavier. I'd like to know one cancer patient that does not experience this feeling upon hearing their diagnosis. Or while waiting for their scan results? When having to make plans for their end-of-life care? When thinking about legacy and what they will leave behind? But these are points of stress -- where is the pleasure? Well, that's a choice we make.
