Engage in All-Day Foreplay

As a continuation of the previous tip, use these affectionate, physical gestures as a means of gearing up for some later-in-the-day nookie. A single, quick arm caress right before you mount your partner doesn’t cut it as far as getting her in the mood for full-on intercourse, and lazy foreplay practices come across as even weaker when cancer treatments have messed around with her libido levels. But giving your partner the warm fuzzies throughout the day can leave her with sex on the brain, making her all the more likely to respond to your sexual overtures later on. And these nice gestures don’t have to be limited to the physical. Other things that can be huge turn-ons:
-- Help with the housework
-- Kind words
-- Pleasant surprises
