Diabetes and Sex
Sex can be a joy, a challenge, a puzzle, and a frustration. At its best, it's physically and emotionally fulfilling. At its worst, it can cause feelings of disappointment and failure. Add diabetes to this already complicated mix, and things get even more interesting.

Feel like you could use a little back up? Take the quiz and pick up some tips on a more comfortable, pleasurable sex life.
