In brief: No
Prosyate cancer itself typically does not effect sexual performance.
Prostate cancer treatments typically have an effect on sexual performance for variable periods of time.

I agree with Dr. Porch. The good news for men with prostate cancer is that we have many treatments for erectile dysfunction, so men don't have to choose between prostate cancer treatment and having a sex life.

In brief: No
In fact many men living with prostate cancer have very gratifying sex lives.
Unfortunately a lot of the treatments for prostate cancer, both medical and surgical, interfere with the functioning of the erectile response, and luckily modern medicine has many reliable and safe therapies should a man require assistance.
