All About Pansexuality

MD-Dermatology, MBBS
Sexologist, Pune
All About Pansexuality

Gone are the days when a man is only attracted towards a woman and vice-a-versa. In today's fast changing scenario one can experience physical attraction towards anyone. With the ever widening spectrum of definitions attached to gender and sexuality, we acquaint ourselves with an enormous range of gender notions and understandings pertaining to sexuality. Gone are the days of the water-tight polarities of male and female bodies and their mutual attractions. The society is by and large opening up to the possibility of sexual attractions besides and beyond the normative bounds of heterosexuality or so we hope. 

One of the most significant struggles of contemporary times is the quest for acceptance and acknowledgement of queer identities and breaking all the discriminatory stigmas attached to them. While one cannot really be inveigled into advocating one form of sexuality over the other, the main argument of the movement is to allow anyone and everyone to freely express and exercise their sexual affinities and identities beyond the restrictions of sex, gender, class, caste, race or any such constructed categories. 

Amidst the struggle for championing the cause of free love, there are certain nuances about one's sexuality that have emerged as discrete identities within the larger understanding of the LGBTQ movement. 
Among the others, Pansexuality is relatively a more incipient concept. 

Unlike bisexuality, which conforms to the conventional gender definitions, i.e male and female and professes attraction to both or either, pansexuality is a more inclusive expression of sexuality wherein one feels attracted to anyone, irrespective of one's sex or gender identity. Pansexuality vouches for strong sexual feelings for those who may not identify with a specific gender and consequently, includes transgender and transsexuals within its purview. 

A pansexual is never inhibited or restricted by a person's gender or sex. Initially coined by Sigmund Freud to describe the basis of human interactions in purely sociological terms, the term was later adopted by the LGBTQ activities to describe the group of people whose sexual predispositions were not delineated by gender constructs. For a pansexual, there is a lurking and consistent possibility of getting attracted to anybody at any given situation. Numerous celebrities like Laci Green and Miley Cyrus are explicitly pansexual. 

However, the pansexual community is constantly plagued by myriad indignities and disgraces. Many have labelled them debauch and promiscuous while others try to sympathize with them perceiving them as led awry and confused. In fact one of the major misconception with regard to pansexuality is that it is synonymous to bisexuality. Yet others deride this claim by stating that it is merely a modern fad with no genuine basis. 

Like it or not, pansexuality is a reality, relevant to a lot of our lives. In fact, it secularized love to an unprecedented extent and really lets nothing come in the way. In a world strewn with hostility, hatred and violence, if a sizeable number wishes to advocate indiscriminate and unhindered love, it surely bodes happiness for all.

Hi, I'm 28 weeks pregnant and the recent test report shows that my calcium is 8.7 mg/dL which I believe, is good enough for third trimester. I have been taking 2 calcium tablets (Shelcal-500) daily since the end of first trimester. Now when I mentioned leg cramps (it happens sometimes), my doctor prescribed me Carnisure-500 twice a day and also an additional calcium tablet a day. Are these new additions really necessary, especially when my calcium levels are good? The leg cramps could be due to the Vena Cava also, right? I really don't want to take more medicines if they aren't absolutely necessary? Please advise.

you may be putting more burden on legs by walking more. prop up legs to rest on a stool while you are on chair to do anything you like do some stretching exercises which don't hurt legs but keep the limbs firm calcium levels are low and your demands of resources will be maximum during last 3 months. no harm in taking 2 tablets of calcium as suggested by your doctor

Past 2-3 months my periods have been slightly irregular. Had protected sex on 25th Feb. Boyfriend didn't ejaculate inside even though he was wearing condom. He pulled out before ejaculating. Periods were due on 16th March. Haven't got it yet. Also this month my schedule was slightly different from other months in terms of daily routine. I'm really worried. Why would my periods get delayed? We had safe sex!

If it's beyond tolerance, may take pain killer sometimes but we do not recommend it as a routine. Its not the solution. You may take raktavardhak and aarta shuddhi herbs for about 4 weeks. After seeing response we may advise next phase. If you agree we may advise the same.

Hello, you should take plenty of water to hydrate the entire body including reproductive organs. •Should go for meditation to reduce stress and nourish reproductive organs & to control BP, level as well. Apart from medication, you need to opt the under lying food elements to carry on your pregnancy safely and faster, even. •Apples - carry. Vit A, B1,B2, B6,C & folic acid, hence-eating apples during pregnancy provide quick energy containing  carbohydrate with low calory, preventing high blood pressure in a pregnant women. Sugar and insulin levels be maintained to tone up  the hormonal balance conditioning  reproductive system. Calculation of ovulation period be taken into account to concieve fast & successfully.
