In this episode, Boonie is in an engaging conversation with breast cancer survivor Erica Easter. We chat about Erica maintaining sexual desires during treatment and the ways in which cancer has changed Erica’s perspective on life.

Erica discusses the importance of embracing desires, the pleasure of physical connections, and the need to prioritize one’s own happiness. The conversation touches on various topics, including body image, self-confidence, and the role of friends in fulfilling different needs.
