This article addresses sexual aspects of two related HCP-roles in the period between a diagnosis of prostate cancer (PC) and the start of treatment. First, the ‘lovemap-perspective’ is used to fine-tune the process of shared decision making. Then sexual prehabilitation is explored in detail, in the belief that better sexual function before starting treatment is more likely to lead to better post-treatment outcomes. Recommendations will be shared on further development of sexual prehabilitation approaches.
