As yogis, my husband and I already had a great sex life.

Much to our surprise, our sex life since I learned I had cancer has been crazy.

Even the double mastectomy surgery hasn’t slowed us down.

In fact, we have both put on a few pounds to prepare for chemo. Little did we know the result of the news and extra padding would be awesome sex during cancer:

    I so love and appreciate that you both are being so candid and honest about your experience with cancer. You're answering so many questions people are afraid to ask surrounding breast cancer. You're letting so many women know that their sexuality and femininity is unshakable, and I think that's something a lot of women fear will be taken away from them with breast cancer. I'm sure being in a loving, supportive relationship with a really sweet and thoughtful husband is helping a lot, you two are sooo adorable!

    And you're not freaking me out talking about sex in this video, it's amazing. It's so wonderful that you feel even closer after this and I love to hear about happy couples, it makes me happy! It gives people hope to see others brought together by something that could be seen as tragic, it's all about attitude and perspective, and your videos prove this.

    So much love and blessings to both of you. I hope your recovery is quick and pain-free, Yulady!
